The effect of panel shape on hydrodynamic performances of a vertical v-shaped double-slotted cambered otter-board was investigated using engineering models in a wind tunnel. Three different shape panels (rhomboid, left trapezoid and isosceles trapezoid) were evaluated at a wind speed of 28 m/s. Parameters measured included: drag coefficient Cx, lift coefficient Cy, pitch moment coefficient Cm, center of pressure coefficient Cp , over a range of angle of attack (0° to 70°). These coefficients were used in analyzing the differences in the performance among the three otter-board models. Results showed that the maximum lift coefficient Cy of the otter-board model with the isosceles trapezoid shape panels was highest (2.103 at α=45°). The maximum Cy/Cx of the otter-board with the rhomboid shape panels was highest (3.976 at α=15°). A comparative analysis of Cm and Cp showed that the stability of otter-board model with the isosceles trapezoid shape panels is better in pitch, and the stability of otter-board model with the left trapezoid shape panels is better in roll. The findings of this study can offer useful reference data for the structural optimization of otter-boards for trawling.
