REPRESENTATION OF PROPELLER CHARACTERISTICS SUITABLE FOR PRELIMINARY SHIP DESIGN STUDIES
In the preliminary design of ships, that is the design phase in which the ship size, speed, principal dimensions and proportions are to be determined, the application of computers is increasing rapidly. In this phase the hydrodynamic aspects, including resistance data, wake and thrust deduction data and the screw characteristics are of importance. In this paper the characteristics of screw propellers will be given in a form which make them suitable for use in preliminary design problems. These characteristics are obtained from the open-water tests results with the Wageningen B-screw series. The B-series screw type is used frequently in practice and possesses satisfactory efficiency and adequate cavitation properties. At present about 120 screw models of the B-series have been tested.
