Simulation of Ship Maneuvers Using Recursive Neural Networks
An improved Recursive Neural Network (RNN) maneuvering simulation tool for surface ships is described. Inputs to the simulation, cast in the form of forces and moments, are redefined and extended inExpand
PIV Measurements of the Cross-Flow Velocity Field Around a Turning Submarine Model (ONR Body-1). Part 1. Experimental Setup
Abstract : Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), a quantitative flow visualization technique, was utilized to characterize the flow field around a sting-mounted captive model in a steady turn. TheExpand
Dynamometer Calibration and Usage
Abstract : This report describes a potpourri of information concerning dynamometers that has been in use by various groups within the Maneuvering and Control Department of the HydrodynamicsExpand

A noninvasive method for the measurement of flow-induced surface displacement of a compliant surface
A noninvasive optical method is described which allows the measurement of the vertical component of the instantaneous displacement of a surface at one or more points. The method has been used toExpand
Naval Maneuvering Research and the Need for Shear Stress Measurements (Invited)
†† An overview is given of some of the submarine and surface ship research conducted at the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division. The paper is presented in a session detailing novel shearExpand
Uncertainty Analysis Applied to Feedforward Neural Networks1
Abstract Three problems associated with uncertainty in feedforward neural network predictions are discussed. First, the uncertainty present in the input vector propagates through a trained networkExpand
Impact of Flow Control Technologies on Naval Platforms (Invited)
This paper highlights flow control technologies and draws a connection between the technologies and US Navy applications, specifically submarines, where possible. This paper does not provide anExpand
