Abstract
The assessment of hydrodynamic characteristics of a screw propeller in open water test is of crucial significance in the preliminary design stage of a ship. The open water characteristics can be accurately predicted by towing tank measurements. Taking into account the significant advances in computational fluid dynamics which has enabled the numerical assessment of the open water characteristics, the time and the cost of propeller design are significantly reduced. Open water characteristics can be assessed numerically using potential and viscous flow theory. The former one allows faster and simpler preliminary determination of open water characteristics. Within ...
