The application of computational fluid dynamics method to the submarine maneuvering simulations of ONR Body 1 is presented. ONR Body 1 is an unclassified submarine radio controlled model with propeller and control surfaces. Unsteady Reynolds-averaged Naviers-Stokes equations of fluid flow is coupled to the six degrees-of-freedom equations of motion of a rigid body via user coding to predict the instantaneous position and body orientation. Propeller and control surface motions are accounted for by using the moving mesh feature integrated into the solution procedure which allows sliding interfaces between different mesh blocks of the computational domain (for propeller rotation), as well as mesh distortion (for control surface deflection). This offers the flexibility of using a single computational grid for the entire simulation period. The maneuvers simulated include a constant depth and heading run as well as a horizontal overshoot maneuver using conditions consistent with the experiment. Predicted results show favorable agreement with experimental measurements.
