Abstract
In this master thesis different propeller design and analysis methods are presented and compared in terms of the accuracy and computational efficiency of their theory. These methods include lifting line, vortex lattice lifting surface and panel methods. A propeller design program based on lifting line theory was developed by the author. This program has been used together with the propeller design programs OpenProp and AKPD to make six propeller designs. The designs are based on two sets of input data, making three designs for each set. Each propeller design has been analyzed for performance in the analysis software AKPA. Cavitation analyses have also been perfo...
