Calculation of Submarine Derivatives

1. Introduction

It has been seen that a great deal of information about submarine performance, and stability and control, can be obtained

from a study of the simplified linear equations ot motion despite the many assumptions that have to be made. In order to use these equations we must have available realistic numerical valuea for the coefficients of the equations, that iSt the derivatives. It would obviously be desirable to be able to determine these derivatives in the early stages of the design so that the necessary predictions could be made to check that the design meets the various requirements laid

. down. At this €arly'stage changes eould easily be made to improve

the design if it were found that the requirements were not being met.

\ A method is described below for calculating the derivatives

of single-screw submarines. The method is not claimed to be very accurate (within 10% is considered. good) but· is suitable for preliminary design calculations and also for estimating the effects of small changes

" tea.. de s i gn . The derivatives so found apply only where the incidence )\' , of the submarine or the curvature of its path are small. They are 'thus

sui table for che eking the s tabili ty of the submarine but not, for instance, for describing turning in the horizontal plane when the curvature becomes large.

It is assumed that the derivatives for the complete submarine can be found by adding the contributions of each of the components (hull, propel1er~ appendages) and including any interference effects betveen components.

2. Accuracy

Particularly when estimating the effects on derivatives of small changes to the design it is important that great care is taken in reading values from the various figures and in using identical methods each time. The changes in derivatives may otherwise reflect the different methods rather than the changes to the design.

3. Hull

Many classical textbooks of hydrodynamics derive the forces acting on a neutrally buoyant ellipsoid moving through an ideal, inviscid fluid. If the ellipsoid baa an angle of attack to the floY & destabilising moment acts on the bodyt but no lifting force. Lamb, in Reference 2 derived the values ot tha destabilising moment for an ellipsoid of revolution in terms ot k and k t the coetficient.

At an angle ot attack, a body of revolution does generate lift and the Munk moment is an overestimate of the moment in a real fluid.

In attempting to derive an improved theory von Karman, Reference,·tO, proposed the existence of a vortex trail and this has since been fOW1d experimentally by Harrington, Reference. _1.1. The body ot revolution generates lift in a manner similar to that of a lov aspect ratio aerafoil, vorticity being sbed from the after part ot the body .... here the boundary layer is thickening rapidly.

This trailing vorticity associated with lift vill cause d

tail surfaces, body lift will interfere with the lift on the tail. The tail is normally a very efficient lifting surface compared to the hull, 80 a method for accurately estimating the torcel on a bar. hull should be combined with a method tor calculating the effect OD the tail forces.

A method similar to that used by the early airship designers has been found to give acceptable results:-

z~ • - I {Z~.)TAIL

x • distance ot ta~": f-orward of CG



These equations treat the body,as~if in potential flov and ignore the effects of dovnvash. The pred1ctlon of these derivatives vill ~e discussed under the headings of hull and tail fins but,it is emphasised that the hull derivatives sO found are not 1ntended to

f O~ the hull: the hull and tail derivatives must represent the orces u

Tbe ideal fluid forces and moments will be used for the effect of the hull as explained above. Extending the equation to include the horizontal plane derivatives we have

V k ,k and k are the added mass coefficients for motion in the x,

y and z directions, and may be obtained with sufficient accuracy by considering in place of the hull an "equivalent ellipsoid". This is an ellipsoid having the same volume and length as the hull, and therefore the same value of m'. The ratio of the two smaller axes is made the same as the ratio of the projected areas of the hull in profile and in plan. The moments of inertia in pitch and yaw, It and

The added mass coefficients of an ellipsoid of revolution (b = c)

are given by Lamb, Reference 2, and for the general case, (a ~ b # c), by Kochin, Kibel and Roze in Reference 3. Recent vork by the author has shown that, over the range of shapes found in submarines, the coefficients may be derived from Lamb's coefficients, k,f k2 and kl, as calculated for an ellipsoid with

4. Propeller

~ Apart from the effect on the flow over the body the propeller

as a fin-effect of its own. For a propeller in open water there re a number of published papers giving methods of calculating the ~ide force in non-axial flow.

One of the simplest is by Harris (Ref. 4) and gives:

z.,'

=

y , v

= -4.24 D2 (K~ ~ dKQ)

J 12 -"'\o! - 2 dJ

where D is diameter of propeller.

This assumes that the tangential force is distributed uniformly along the length of the blades but little error occurs if this is not so. If the tangential force distribution is of the form r3(1- r)2 (where r = radius/max radius) then the error is only 5%.

Evaluation of this term involves a knowledge of wake and propeller characteristics. If this is not available the wake from a similar ship can be used and propeller data obtained from data sheets, Ref. 5.

The propeller on the submarine is not in open water and its

real incidence to the flow may be different to that of the hull. In particular the incidence of the propeller will be affected by the dovnvash behind the rudders and stern hydroplanes. However it is suggested

that no correction be made to the open water derivative, which is usually small compared with hull and fin derivatives.

5. Fins

There is a vast amount of data available concerning the lift characteristics of the aero foil-type appendages which are common to aircraft, submarines, etc. Most of this data comes from the aircraft field. Reference 6 can be used to calculate the lift slope (6CL)/(oa) of isolated low aspect ratio aerofoils and shows clearly the effects of the major design parameters. The data from Ref. 6 can also be used to calculate the interference effects for fins mounted at the tail of a body (such as stern hydroplanes and rudders). Ref. 7 can be used to calculate the interference effects for fins mounted where the hull is cylindrical (such as the bridge fin). Ref. 7 can also be used to calculate vortex interference effects.

f is the ~orrection for controls which do not extend over the whole span and is found from fig. 6. The method of estimating a2/a1 from these figures is given in the Appendix.

7. Bridge Fin

Reference 7 gives correction factors to lift for pairs of fins mounted on a cylindrical body. The correction factors are applied to the lift slope of a wing consisting of the two opposite fins removed from the body and joined together at the root. a2, the lift slope of

this wing, can be obtained from fig. 2 as described above. The correction factors for the interference effects between fin and body are given

in fig. 7.

The factors required for the stability derivative are Kw( ) and These apply to the case when incidence is on both fin anH body.

Values of (KB( ) + K'w'(Bl for""fins mounted symmetrically on an elliptical body are giv~n in Fig. 8.

8. Bo'w' Planes

The same methods can be used for the stability derivative of the bow planes if they are mounted at mid-depth of hull. The correction factors required for the control derivatives are kW(B) and kB( ) for the case 'w'here there is incidence on the fin only

wand the fin is angled 'w'ith respect to the body. These are also given in Fig. 7 for circular hulls, and an estimate for elliptic hulls in Fig. 9.

, Often the bow planes are situated high up on the hull. Fig. 10 gives\ correction factors for stability and control forces for planes not mounted at mid-depth of hull. Also the bow planes are often fitted \ c·on--shafts protruding from the hull so that there is a large gap between plane and hull. Sometimes the shaft is faired to form a fixed 'wing'.

In such cases it is suggested that the lift be taken as that of isolated 'wings' of some area and aspect ratio of the planes only, for both stability and control. From model experiment data it appears that

this under-estimates control forces and experiment values are about

1.5 times larger for lift and about 2 times. larger for moment than values calculated as above, ignoring vortex effects.

Sail Planes (Bridge Fin Planes)

If the chord is much less than the chord of the sail (bridge fin) it is likely that the effect of the planes on the sail lift is small and can be ignored. The lift of the planes can be obtained from that of an isolated aerofoil consisting of tvo planes joined together at their roots.

9. Stern Hydroplanes, and Rudders

Reference 6 gives the correction factor (KW(B) + KB(v))*for pai rs of fins mounted near the tail of a body.

This is reproduced in Fig. 11; the curve for bodies with faired ends should normally be used. Note that this correction factor must be applied to the lift slope of the "gross" wing - formed from the two exposed fins plus the imaginary fin between them. No values of the correction factors for the control term are available for fins mounted at the tail of a body. It is assumed that the ratio of control and stability correction factors will be the same as for fins on a cylindrical body.

Figure 9 g i ves values of v extracted from

K .... (B) + KB(v)

Fig. 7 which can be used vith (Ky{B) + KB(v))* to get the correction

factor for the control derivatives.

Additional corrections IDaj' be required due to the effect of

trailing vortices from the bay planes and the bridge fin. These effects are considered belay.

The upper and lower rudders are otten very different because of the restrictions on the draught of the lower rudder. In this case the rudders should be treated separatelY, the equivalent ying being taken to be the rudder plus its image in the plane of the bydroplanes.

10. Effect of Trailing Vortices

Trailing vortices from the tips ot the bridge fin and boy planes, when lift is developed, ¥ill attect the lift produced trom the upper rudder and stern planee. The vortices streaming past the hull may a.1so induce lift on the hull. From data given in Reterence "~"the effect of these vortices on the lift ot the stern surfaces can be very large, particularly on the upper rudder.

When incidence is present the vortex vill Dot follow an axial direction and its effect on tbe stern control surtaces vill diminisp with lateral separation. But DO vortex vill occur unless there i. incidence to create lift. Thue a Don-lioear ettect vould be expected. For the linear derivative the vortex i. considered to tollov a streamline for the condition ot no incidence. The starting position ot

the vortex depends on the geometry ot the "ving" " but tor moat practical cases it may" be taken at 80 per cent span (measured trom"' hull to tip

Experiment results also show that, for the control derivatives of the bov planes, the centre of pressure Ot the planes is forward of the plane position. This is consistent vith a negative lift on the stern planes caused by vortex interference. Thus it appears that this effect cannot. be ignored. For the present, it is suggested that the vertical . separation of the stern plane and the trailing vortex from the bow plane be considered as ~all and the interference factor given in Figure A12 of the appendix be used.
