Abstract
Tailplane efficiency is a measure of the effectiveness of submarine tail appendages working in the hull boundary layer; it can have a significant impact on stability and manoeuverability. This memorandum describes a study done to observe some of the effects of the DARPA SUBOFF configuration when tailplane efficiency is varied through a range of values that bracket the change from stable to unstable manoeuvering characteristics. The effects are essentially the same as would be obtained by varying the area of the sternplanes and rudders.
