Abstract

Ocean exploration is a challenge which provides knowledge of the environment and ecosystem. Autonomous gliders are advantageous over conventional underwater vehicles. Performances can be evaluated by hydrodynamic characteristics. This paper presents a study of an hydrodynamics estimation for various underwater glider configurations. The designs of hull shape and configuration of underwater gliders which is similar to a torpedo shape are investigated. The hydrodynamics (drags) are estimated by using a computational fluid dynamics Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations with the SST model are used to solve this problem. The numerical studies are determined using open-source software. the work shows results of hydrodynamics comparing a designed underwater glider with the Slocum glider. Performances of the gliders is also evaluated.
