Abstract: Using the methods and means of computational fluid dynamics, a new method for determining the hydrodynamic characteristics of the propulsion-steering complex of submarines has been developed and implemented. This method is based on a systematic approach to solving problems of mechanical and hydrodynamic interaction of elements of the complex under consideration. On the basis of this technique, the impossibility of scaling the hydrodynamic phenomena that accompany the operation of the elements of the propulsion and steering complex has been proved for the first time. An assessment of the hydrodynamic efficiency of 5 variants of the propulsion and steering complex of the submarine “Zuboff” was carried out.

Key words: Computational fluid dynamics; submarine; propulsion and steering complex; method for assessing hydrodynamic efficiency; influence of geometric characteristics.
