Forces and moments due to unsteady motion of an underwater vehicle
Oller, Erik D.
MetadataShow full item record
This research examines the effect of unsteady motion on the forces and moments experienced by an underwater vehicle in shallow water. The test platform is the REMUS Autonomous Underwater Vehicle developed by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, although the results are made non-dimensional to be applicable to a wide range of similar shaped vehicles. The experimental model was moved in sinusoidal motion at various submergences, speeds, frequencies of oscillation, and amplitudes of oscillation.
