Abstract : The report presents the results of a 'flutter' analysis for the submarine USS ALBACORE (AGSS 569). The results were obtained both by performing a simple control-surface computation using analytical expressions derived in the report and by computing the rudder-diving plane (and stabilizer)-hull vibrations (including flutter) on an analog computer. The analogs are based upon previously derived theories and methods for representing the vibrating system and for evaluating various control surface-hull parameters. The analytical and analog results are in excellent agreement and indicate that controlsurface flutter of ALBACORE will occur at about 90 knots. (Author)
