Calculation of added mass in viscous flow
How can we calculate added masses terms for an underwater object, like submarine or torpedo in a vicous flow? is there any sofware capable of computing those? do you remeber any new articles concerning calculating of added mass of a torpedo like body in a viscous flow?

Hi kharati,
How do you similate the torpedo mass, at present? If it is treated as a lumped mass, say via density, then perhaps you could consider increasing the density to accomodate the mass change. If the masschange is to be localised, then you may have to model the torpedo as a group of linked masses & alter the one due to massaddition effects... Have fun... diaw...

Hi,Diaw do anyone remember articles concerning calculation of added mass of a torpedo like body in a viscous fluid flow?
