In this paper we focus on the accurate prediction of the manoeuvring forces of free swimming streamlined submersibles (submarines) using CFD. We compare simulations of a standardised well-known submarine shape (DARPA SUBOFF) for two configurations, one bare hull (AFF-1) and one fully-appended hull (AFF-8), under different inflow angles.
