Dynamics of a fin driven boat - modeling and simulation

H. T. Tran, S. Bikowski, C. D. Wolf, P. Maiber


In this paper the motion of a small sport boat running on a lake is simulated using alaska tools when the external forces and torques from water and excitation force from a person are applied. Using the results from measurements we have done some validations.


multibody system motion equations; fluid forces and torques to running boat; validations by measurement.
