Dynamic Performance of a Bio-inspired Uuv: Effects of Fin Gaits and Orientation

Abstract

The analysis of a proposed fin configuration change to a four-fin unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) is described in this paper. Based on unsteady flow computations and experimental fin measurements, the forces and moments produced by the fins are evaluated for two fin configurations. As a result of this study, a change is made to a design that enables… (More)
