Mathematical Simulation of Hovercraft Maneuvering

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


A mathematical model of a maneuvering amphibious air. cushion vehicle (ACV) is presented. The ACV, studied is of plenum-chamber type with constant pressure applied to the free-surface of the fluid. The main efforts of this paper are concentmted in clarifying the role and the significance of the hydrodynamical forces exerted by a moving pressure distribution. The general method of approach is illustrated by means of solving the titled problem for a schematic air-cushion planform close to the ACV SR.N2.
