Abstract : The heeling behavior of a fully-submerged foil hydrofoil craft turning, has been studied by producing a digital computer simulation program, using a digital simulation language on the digital computer IBM system 360/67. The foil craft high point PC(H)-1 is used as the model of this simulation.
