Design of a Low Reynolds Number Propulsion System for an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

A methodology for the design of small autonomous underwater vehicle propulsion systems has been developed and applied to the Virginia Tech 690 AUV. The methodology is novel in that it incorporates fast design level codes capable of predicting the viscous effects of low Reynolds number flow that is e...
