Optimization of Drag on Underwater Remote Operated Vehicle
This paper presents the actual drag force acting on the vehicle and the methods taken to reduce drag. Different
shapes were made and analyzed in Ansys 16.2 fluent module. The best shape which gives lowest coefficient of drag and drag
force was finalized. This shape was again modified to obtain the lowest coefficient of drag and drag force.
Keywords - ROV, Ansys 16.2, Drag force, Coefficient of drag.
