INVERTED PENDULUM STABILIZATION OF SUBMARINES IN FREE POSITIVE BUOYANCY ASCENT

The problem of steady-state vertical ascent of a submarine with excess buoyancy is analyzed. All possible vertical plane solutions are computed and their stability is established in both in-plane and out-of-plane perturbations. Divergence of trajectories, sensitivity of solutions to initial conditions, and stable inverted pendulum configurations are shown to exist for certain ranges of parameters.
