Estimates of the uncertainties attached to full-scale predictions of submarine resistance and propulsion based on standard submarine tow-tank model tests are obtained by means of a global uncertainty analysis. The analysis takes into account all the component uncertainties, including the uncertainties associated with the prediction procedure and the measurements performed both at model scale and at full scale, which influence the overall uncertainty of full-scale predictions.
