Abstract

This article describes a literature survey focused on published empirical measurements
of external flows over bodies of revolution that can be employed for verification and validation of calculations of survey-class Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) or other like bodies. The flow regime for a survey-class AUV is defined, and a mathematically-optimal velocity results for these energy-limited vehicles. A range-maximal hotel load is one of the inferences. Cavitation is shown not to affect this type of AUV. A table of vital statistics of contemporary survey-class AUVs is provided.
