AbstractExperiments were performed with the bare hull of a full-scale, slender, body-of-revolution underwater vehicle of five different lengths, using an internal three-component balance and a planar motion mechanism (PMM). The experiments included resistance, static yaw, dynamic sway and yaw, and, circular arc runs. Results from the resistance, static yaw and sway runs are presented.
