Alexander Phillips1, Stephen R. Turnock1, Maaten Furlong2 1 School of Engineering Sciences, University of Southampton 2National Oceanography Centre, Southampton Abstract The use of an unsteady Computational Fluid Dynamic analysis of the manoeuvring performance of a self-propelled ship requires a large computational resource that restricts its use as part of(More)
Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV’s) provide an important tool for collecting detailed scientific information from the oceans depths. The hull resistance of an AUV is an important factor in determining the powering requirements and range of the vehicle. This paper discusses the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to determine the hull resistance of(More)
Various forms of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) have evolved to solve different subsea mission requirements, these can be loosely grouped into two types: torpedo style AUVs and hovering AUVs. Torpedo AUVs were initially developed to be launched from torpedo tubes and consequently resemble torpedoes with a propeller and control surfaces at the rear,(More)
Computational Fluid Dynamics is used to investigate the global forces and moments acting on the KVLCC2 hull form under going straight line, drift and pure sway planar motion mechanism tests. Simulated results are compared with experimental results for the unappended hull in shallow water and a fully appended hull with a propeller acting at the ship self(More)
We present a MUSE and KMOS dynamical study 405 star-forming galaxies at redshift z = 0.28–1.65 (median redshift z̄ = 0.84). Our sample are representative of star-forming, mainsequence galaxies, with star-formation rates of SFR = 0.1–30 M⊙ yr and stellar masses M⋆ = 10–10 M⊙. For 49± 4% of our sample, the dynamics suggest rotational support, 24± 3% are(More)
Hydrodynamic derivatives are used to model the manoeuvring performance of proposed and existing hull forms. A simple robust method, using unsteady RANS simulations is presented to numerically replicate the experimental PMM tests performed on a scale model of the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) Autosub. The method uses a body fitted inner domain to(More)
