Numerical Study of XCP Probe's Fluid Dynamic Characteristics
Applied the finite volume method combining two-equations turbulence model,the influence of fluid dynamic characteristics on XCP probe under different factors be studied The fluid dynamic characteristics were researched under different influencing factors, such as falling speed, rotating rate,seawater density,etc. The drag coefficient under the different falling speeds and the limited velocity of submarine steady motion were obtained. Compared with the experimental results, the simulated results agree well with experimental results, the experiments have show the validity and feasibility of the numerical analysis method. These results will provide theory reference for selecting the reasonable rotating rate, analyzing stability and the movement rule of probe in the water, choosing suitable test parameters for XCP probe of different seawaters.
