FLOW OBSERVATIONS AND AN ANALYSIS OF VELOCITY SURVEY DATA FOR A UNITED STATES COAST GUARD WYTM REPRESENTED BY MODEL 5336

A velocity survey experiment was conducted with a model representing a United States Coast Guard WYTM. Values of longitudinal and tangential velocity component ratios are included herein. A harmonic analysis of the circumferential distribution of the longitudinal and tangential velocity component ratios was performed. The results are presented herein and are considered valid. Experiments were conducted to determine flow patterns about under water portion of hull. Photographs show separation above propeller. (Author)
