AbstractDRDC and NRC-IOT have collaborated on testing a model of the Victoria class submarines at IOT in St. John's. Hydrodynamic coefficients derived from these experiments will be used in numerical models to simulate manoeuverability and emergency recovery. We summarize the test programs and results so far, and illustrate derivation of the principal coefficients. A qualitative comparison is made with other data and semiempirical predictions. An additional test program scheduled for late 2007 complete the experimental component of this work.
