Study on Hydrodunamic Coefficients of Mini Automatic Underwater Vehicle
Maneuverability is an important part of the vehicle’s general abilities.This paper uses sofware Fluent to simulate the planar movement mechanism(PMM) experiment while turbulence modle is adoped.The results of steady-state tests and unsteady-state tests could be analyzed to the hydrodunamic coefficients of a Mini Automatic Underwater Vehicle(AUV)and the dymatic mesh is adoped to simulate the motion of heave,sway,pitch,yaw.Finally, the motion simulation platform was built with the hydrodunamic coefficients and the motion performance of the vehicle was analyzed.
