Abstract

Water entry tests of 2-inch diameter models of the MK 13-6 Torpedo with two nose shapes were made in the Controlled Atmosphere Launching Tank to determine: a. The effect of atmospheric pressure on the water entry behavior of small models. b. The influence of nose shape on the magnitude of atmospheric pressure effects. c. Whether model behavior will be similar to prototype behavior when the speed is scaled according to the Froude law and atmospheric pressure according to the linear scale, and atmospheric density is allowed to vary with the pressure.
