ion submarines. During the underwater scheme design period, the calculation of resistance is an important task. In practice, the motions of the vehicles can be decoupled into horizontal and vertical motion. Therefore, estimation of the hydrodynamic coefficients of movement back and forth (horizontal), movement down and up (vertical) is the key step to predict the motion of the underwater vehicles. Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) simulations are carried out to numerically simulate the motion cases. This paper provides a detailed evaluation of the influence of seabed and water surface. The computational results are verified by comparison with the real data.It shows that method can be used to estimate the resistance of an underwater vehicle. Keywords: Resistance, underwater vehicles, simulation, hydrodynamic coefficients 1. Introduction* We calculated for movement back and forth (horizontal), movement down and up (vertical), and Prediction of submarine resistance is an evaluated the influence of seabed and water surface important task. It is also necessary to predict by calculating the resistant coefficients of vehicle’s accurately the resistance of a submarine to design the motion near a seabed or a free surface. The motion propulsor. The resistance of submarine can be near water surface effects on the hydrodynamic determined either by model testing (Planar Motion coefficients investigated by using the finite volume Mechanism-PMM) [1], or by Computational Fluid method (VOF) available in software Ansys Fluent.

Thisstudy aims to explore the possibility of The potential theory could predict the inertial developing turbulent models and the numerical hydrodynamic coefficients satisfactorily, but with the method to evaluate the motion characteristics of viscous terms neglected [2].

The number of phases models are used: the model −ε , this model is k present in this case is 2. Then the implicit formulation −ω efficient and inexpensive, then the model k is is used as well as open chanel flow. The two desired used, this model is a little more accurate but more phases are then to be defined here, seawater and air. expensive. And finally, the model Spalart Allmaras is applied.This model is less expensive than the other two because there is only one equation.It is adapted in this type of turbulence because the turbulence generated by the flow is low. Several models are simulated to check the correlation of the results.The simulation method of the motion on the water surface (floating)was different from the others.In fact, the submarine moving to the surface with the base at 1,487m deep and the rest outside the water. The simulation requires the presence of two fluids as in Fig.3(sea water and air). For this simulation,the VOF (volume of fluid) calculation method is used, which simulates in several fluids. Fig. 3.

Distribution of meshes according to quality Once the mesh was achieved, the quality of the elements was evaluated with the skewness setting. On the domain near the wall or near the free surface the value of skewness is 0, the better the quality, and on the domain away from the wall, the value of skewness is between 0 and 0.5 The average is 0.22 and the standard deviation is 0.1, which means that Fig. 8. a) Pressure distribution in motion down 99.74% of the values have a skewness between 0 and vertical (VD= 1.5 m/s, CD= 0.903) 0.5.
