Abstract
A study was conducted of modeling changes to the XR-3 Captured Air Bubble Surface Effect Ship digital computer Loads and Motion program. These changes included the addition of pressure rate and volume rate to the existing 6 degrees of freedom equations. Additional equations were developed to simulate the application of a nonpermeable membrane to the plenum of the XR-3 test craft. The objectives of this study were to determine whether the addition of pressure rate and volume rate equations would improve computer execution time and to test some simplified models of the plenum membrane. Computer timing improvements were demonstrated and membrane modeling results are presented.
