Abstract
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is considered as an effective tool to evaluate the performance of the autonomic underwater vehicle (in short, AUV) with propeller and rudders. This work simulates hull-propeller-rudder interaction under four different general arrangement conditions, and analysis on hull resistance, propeller thrust, torque and efficiency, rudder lift, drag and its ratio. The best layout mode of propeller and rudders is finally determined from assesses the advantages of each program strategy and the actual needs.
