A Motion Model of a Remotely Operated Underwater Vehicle: CFD Simulation
Keywords:hydrodynamics, CFD simulation, remotely operated vehicle, turbulent water flow
The article is directly related to the authors’ previous study of the remotely operated underwater vehicle’s (ROV) motion, where the mathematical model of the ROV motion is derived for laminar flow of water. This solution of the ROV motion has been improved by using the three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation that allows simulating the turbulent flow, which is mainly generated by propellers. Both methods were coupled to obtain more accurate values of hydrodynamic damping coefficients for the improved determination of the ROV motion velocity. Results of the solution are discussed and some of them are compared with the experiment.
