HYDRODYNAMIC STABILITY OF PARTIALLY SUBMERGED THIN PROFILES AT HIGH FROUDE NUMBERS

SES technology involves an order of magnitude jump in dynamic pressure compared with buoyancy vessels: 100B to 2KSES is a similar jump in weight. Large structures (aircraft, bridges, cooling towers) in high-speed flow have historically fluttered until such phenomena were accounted for by appropriate structural design criteria. Hydroelastic coupling on the SES is only significant during wave encounter when dynamic load magnification and fatigue life will be critically dependent on flutter margin. However, high Froude number hydrodynamic coefficients for posing such problems do not exist. Some initial steps for their formulation are discussed.
