This two part series on Hull-Propeller Interaction concludes with a session on Propeller Performance (Part 2). We discuss “wake-adapted” propeller design and analysis, as well as differences between steady and unsteady performance and calculation. Propeller design tips are introduced for operation in unsteady wake fields (including typical criteria for propeller blade-to-hull clearance), and we illustrate how estimates of Effective wake properties can be used when ship-specific values are not available. Join Don MacPherson for this 30-minute webinar that will introduce some of the key concepts about wake-adapted propeller performance that are needed by naval architects and designers to ensure best outcomes for noise & vibration, propeller efficiency, and overall performance.
