Abstract : The equations which govern the motion of a deep-submergence vehicle are transformed into the state variable form in which the states are the six vehicular velocities (three translational and three angular). Simulations on a digital computer are carried out resulting in the trajectories of the vehicle for different values of propulsion and maneuvering units as well as for differently shaped vehicles. The specific cases simulated are the diving and turning maneuvers, as well as a combination of these, of a vehicle which is elliptical when viewed from the side and whose front view is varied from elliptical, with the major axis along both the horizontal and vertical axes, to circular.
