The effect of vehicle velocity and drift angle on through-body AUV tunnel thruster performance
Aaron Saunders and Meyer Nahon

 
Abstract
    New applications of streamlined Autonomous Underwater Vehicles require an AUV capable of completing missions with both high-speed straight-line runs and slow maneuvers or station keeping tasks. At low, or zero, forward speeds, the AUV
