AbstractThis report describes a finite element model for predicting the deflection under load for the aft end of a submarine model sting mounted on a six-component balance. This report also describes the deflection versus load measurements that were made to determine if the tail section of the submarine model was making contact with the sting during model testing. The results of the physical tests are compared to the predictions of the finite model.
