5512 Steady

Posted on September 10th, 2013

Experiment Results from towing tank experiments for David Taylor Model Basin model 5512 are presented for resistance, sinkage and trim, wave profile, and nominal wake tests and uncertainty assessment. Model 5512 is a 1:46.6 scale, 3.048 m long, fiber reinforced Plexiglas hull, which is a geosim of DTMB model 5415, a 1:24.8 scale 5.72 m model. […]

5512 Forward Speed Diffraction

Posted on September 10th, 2013

Experiment Results are presented from towing-tank tests of forces and moment, wave elevation, and phase-averaged nominal wake velocities and Reynolds stresses for a surface combatant advancing in regular head waves, but restrained from body motions, i.e., forward-speed diffraction problem. The geometry is DTMB model 5512, a 1:46.6 scale, 3.048 m long, fiber reinforced Plexiglas hull. […]

Stem to Stern: Revolutionizing Ship Hydrodynamics

Posted on August 1st, 2013

For 17-year-old Fred Stern, the future looked bright from the deck of a sailboat racing across the waters of Lake Ontario. The young man from Syracuse, N.Y., took advantage of his home’s close proximity to the Great Lakes to spend every moment he could sailing. With a small push from his father, Stern channeled his […]
