In the ongoing pursuit of bolstering maritime military capabilities, the optimization and augmentation of submarine performance stand as pivotal objectives within the realm of strategic naval power. Given the exacting operational standards required for submarines to execute vital missions like reconnaissance, stealthy attacks, and tracking, this study leverages Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation technology to meticulously analyze and evaluate submarine maneuverability under various rudder angle configurations. Through a thorough examination of a spectrum of simulation results, this study unveils the critical determinants influencing submarine maneuverability and proposes corresponding optimization strategies. The outcomes not only furnish a robust scientific foundation for enhancing submarine maneuvering capabilities but also offer valuable technical insights for advancing overall submarine operational efficacy. The discoveries of this study bear significant practical significance and applicability, guiding submarine design endeavors and fortifying tactical responsiveness in intricate maritime settings.
