2) [32 pts] New bow planes are designed to trim an autonomous submarine (one on each side of the hull). The foils are flat each with an elliptical planform area of 0.015 m2 and a span of 0.25m . The lift required to trim the hull is 25 N at a vehicle speed of 4 m/s. If the viscous drag coef. (based on planform area) is 0.008 find: a) Lift coef. of one foil b) Estimate the induced drag on both foils c) Estimate the total drag on both foils d) If the hull moves at 4 m/s find the power required to overcome the drag of the foils.
3) [56 pts]A 4 bladed propeller is placed on a submarine hull and is measured to have the following performance: Diameter: 5 meter (R=2.5m) Hub radius: 1 m Rotational speed: 120 rpm Ship speed: 10 m/s
