A remotely operated vehicle (ROV) is a tethered underwater robot in offshore industry. As the oil and gas indus@ moves to more subsea environment, ROVs will become an even more important in drilling, development and repair offshore. The pahl and Beitz method is using to design a functional manipulator ann. Some of the sensitivity equipment like sensor nqeds to be installed on the manipulator arm to improve the performance. Analyze the manipulator ann under various fluid flow conditions was done by using computational fluid dynamics CFD ANSYS software. Simulation is done on the manipulator ann model drawn in the Solidworks Design Application software. Simulation on the manipulator ann is carried out with different yaw angle of 0o, l5o and 30" and different depth in lm, 5m and 10m. The inlet is set to 1.5m/s and outlet is set to l.3m/s. Pressure regions acting on the manipulator arrn have the lower velocity. This means that pressure is inversely proportional to the velocity. Reynolds number, pressure and velocity contours determined by using CFD software.
