Abstract
Flow visualization experiments were carried out in the NAE 2 x 3 m low speed wind tunnel with some members of a systematic series of idealized submarine configurations. Only hull-alone and hull and sail configurations were tested. The experiments were done at Reynolds numbers between 4.9 and 9.5 million. Results are reported for hull flow separation, flow on the sail and for flow in the sail/hull junction. In addition to some derived quantitative data, many photographs and interpretive sketches are included.
