Abstract

Simulated reactions of an underwater vehicle to constraints generated by a drive system T. Graczyk Faculty of Maritime Technology, Technical University, 71 065 Szczecin, Poland ABSTRACT The paper presents an attempt of describing movement properties of an underwater vehicle at the initial phase of designing. The author studies the flat motion of a vehicle on a vertical longitudinal plane for a certain drive system arrangement. The computer simulation makes it possible to predict the behaviour of a vehicle. 1 INTRODUCTION Most of the drive systems of remotely operated vehicles (ROV) are designed to perform the motion of four degrees of freedom, i.e. three degrees of the rectilinear motion and the rotation around the vertical axis [1,7,8], Such a kind of vehicle movements allows to perform various sophisticated tasks without diver assistance. The most frequent redundant system is repr
