Torpedo Anchor Installation Hydrodynamics
The installation procedure of a torpedo anchor is the release of the torpedo from a high enough position from the sea bottom to allow the device to reach the terminal velocity. A sufficient kineticExpand

Hydroelastic Buffeting Assessment Over a Vertically Hinged Flat Plate
This study explores hydroelastic buffeting of a flat plate experimentally. The flat plate is hinged vertically to an elastic axis, and its only degree of freedom, therefore, is rotation in pure yawExpand

Strouhal number of flat and flapped plate at various angles of attack and Reynolds numbers: experimental data
This paper is devoted to considering the Strouhal number (St) of various geometries of a plate at different angles of attack ( $$0^{\circ }$$ – $$90^{\circ }$$ ), while the Reynolds number ( Expand

The Influence of Vortex Formation on the Damping of FPSOs With Large Width Bilge Keels
The roll damping of a FPSO assessment is a different subject than the ship case. The fact that the FPSO is not moving changes the flow hydrodynamics in such a way that the well establishedExpand
