AbstractExperiments were performed at the NRC-IOT 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. The data from the pure yaw (zigzag) captive manoeuvring tests were used to develop regression equations in the form of Response Surface Models (RSMs) for the hydrodynamic loads versus manoeuvre inputs. A sample application of the RSMs is illustrated in comparison with sea-trials data from the underwater vehicle ?MUN Explorer?.
