When the David Taylor Model Basin became interested in making studies of the hydrodynamical behavior of streamline bodies of revolution, it was decided that such work could be most satisfactorily accomplished with families of bodies of revolution for which certain parameters could be systematically varied.

The results of experiments with a systematic series of 24 mathematically related streamlined bodies of revolution, showing how the resistance of these bodies at deep submergence varies with changes in five selected geometrical parameters, are presented. [1]

The 4166 is one of the bodies of this family represented below as surface model and also the section coordinates.
