Variation in the wave resistance of an amphibian air-cushion vehicle moving over a broken-ice field
- 43 Downloads
The nonstationary rectilinear motion of an amphibian air-cushion vehicle (AACV) on a water surface covered with finely broken ice is considered for various modes of velocity variation. The influence of the water depth, flotation parameters, and mode of motion on the wave resistance of the vehicle is analyzed. Maneuvering methods for increasing or decreasing the wave resistance of AACVs are proposed.
