The commercial software ANSYS CFX is used for modeling the hydrodynamic characteristics of submarine-launched vehicle. In the numerical simulations, the SST (Shear Stress Transport) turbulence model is employed to describe the turbulence phenomenon occurring in the continuous fluid. The Rayleigh-Plesset equations are applied to analyze the cavitation phenomenon. Three-dimensional numerical simulation was carried out to study the cavity shape, the surface pressure distribution and the drag force with different flow control. The result shows that the gas and the number of ventilation holes control to show any significant impact on the cavity shape and the surface pressure are effective measures to decrease resistance.
Key words: flow controlling / ventilation holes / cavity shape / multiphase flow / numerical simulation
