Standard Submarine Model: A Survey of Static Hydrodynamic Experiments and Semiempirical Predictions

114 pp.

This report describes comparison between measurements of static hydrodynamic loads on the Standard Submarine Model in a number of different test facilities, and comparison between selected experimental data and predictions from the DSSP20 manoeuvering simulation code. The experiments constitute a substantial database for code development and validation. Differences between data from various facilities are in general not very great. Agreement with the predictions is generally satisfactory within a modest range of incidence, i.e., angles below 20 to 30 degrees, although some significant deviations are observed outside this range.
