This paper presents the results of a review and analysis of the problem of flutter of submerged surfaces. It is noted that certain rather serious discrepancies exist between theory and experiment leading to highly unconservative predictions of flutter speed. A number of possible reasons for such a wide discrepancy are investigated and discussed in detail, however none of them alone is adequate to bring theory and experiment into sufficiently good agreement for design purposes.
