Numerical analyses of a flat planing plate in a towing tank were performed using the ANSYS Fluent software package. The flat plate represented a simple version of a sponson for a suspension boat. Analyses were performed for different trim angles, draft at the trailing edge, and speed. The results were compared to published experimental data. The agreement was in general fair (on the order of 10%).
