5512 Captive Maneuvering

Posted on September 10th, 2013

Experiment Towing-tank experiments are performed for a surface combatant as it undergoes static and dynamic planar motion mechanism maneuvers in calm water. The data includes global forces/moment/motions and phase-averaged local flow-fields, and uncertainty assessment. The geometry is DTMB model 5512, a 1:46.6 scale, 3.048 m long, fiber reinforced Plexiglas hull. Model 5512 is a geosim […]

5512 Roll Decay

Posted on September 10th, 2013

Experiment Towing-tank experiments are performed for an advancing surface combatant in free roll decay motions. Results are presented for motions (surge, sway, heave, roll, pitch and yaw), forces (resistance, sway and heave), moments (pitch and yaw), phase-averaged velocities (U, V and W) for a measurement region near the bilge keel and free surface elevations.  The geometry of interest is DTMB […]

Flat Plate

Posted on August 28th, 2013

Experiment Results are presented from a towing-tank experiment of 3D separation and free-surface turbulence to provide detailed documentation of the flow appropriate both for explicating the flow physics and validating computational methods.  The model is NACA24 which is a 1.2 m chord length, vertical, surface-piercing hydrofoil.  The data includes far and near field wave elevations, […]

Since 1948, IIHR has been an important player in enhancing U.S. naval ship performance through front-line research in hydrodynamics. IIHR’s unique combination of resources, facilities, and top researchers promises an ongoing leading role for the University of Iowa in naval ship hydrodynamics. IIHR—Hydroscience & Engineering at the University of Iowa is leading a revolution in […]
