EVALUATION OF BULBOUS BOWS DERIVED FROM WAVE SPECTRA ANALYSIS ON THE LSD 41 (MODEL 5367)

Bulbous bows were designed for LSD 41 Model 5367 using a theoretical approach developed by Sharma which uses data from longitudinal wavecut experiments. The performances of the bulbs are compared to that of the original design bulb. The results indicate that the wavecut bulbs have the same or lower resistance at higher speeds than the original bulb for the model. (Author)
