Optimization of Underwater Body's Shape
In order to make the resistance underwater as small as possible, the shape of cavitator has been studied, and supercavitation resistance and drag reduction which related to the foreign experimental results is discussed. In this paper, first the super-cavity underwater body shape is optimized. we analyzed the super-cavity flow model and has gain cavity's radius function in the optimization, then use the path of least resistance, which result in Mathematical modeling with the largest cavity volume by the double goals of optimizing, and the constraints are given.
