This paper provides highlights of results of a recent investigation completed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology pertaining to the characterization of the steady and unsteady maneuvering force dynamics associated with an azimuthing podded propulsor. Highlighted results include quasi-steady and unsteady forces, as well as several methods of flow visualization.
