PERFORMANCE OF THE NSRDC TAP-1 AND TAP-2 HYDROFOIL MODELS-LOCKHEED UNDERWATER MISSLE FACILITY

Towing tests of strut/hydrofoil models supplied by the Naval Ship Research and Development Center have been conducted in the Lockheed Underwater Missile Facility under simultaneous cavitation and Froude scaled conditions. The major part of the tests were with a model of a new strut/hydrofoil system design TAP-2. Following this, a brief series of tests were performed with TAP-1. Lift, drag, sideforce, and pitching moment were measured and cavitation and ventilation characteristics were recorded on film with the objective of providing a data base for the evaluation of hydrodynamic characteristics. /Author/
