AbstractThis research is focused on the hydrodynamic behaviour of a series of hull forms for an underwater vehicle, which includes a range of length-to-diameter ratios. Experimental data were gathered for several standard manoeuvring experiments and a reverse Design Of Experiment (DOE) was applied to the available data. From the DOE point of view, the effects of the main factors in each type of experiment were studied and an appropriate Response Surface Model (RSM) was fitted to the data. The developed empirical model is very useful in predicting the non-dimensional hydrodynamic force and moment coefficients, which is a major step in simulating the motion of an underwater vehicle.
