Design and Structural Simulation of Observation Class Remotely Operated Vehicle
This paper presents a 3D modeling of Observation Class Remotely Operated Vehicle (OCROV) for underwater
tunnel inspection. The recent design and developments of the OCROV are brought under-light through this research. The
detail CAD modeling of ROV elements are explained and static structural analysis of complex elements is carried out and
CFD analysis is performed on side plate to achieve low drag in lateral direction. The selection of appropriate material for
designing of an OCROV is proposed in this paper.
