A METHOD FOR ANALYZING THE PROPELLER-INDUCED VIBRATORY FORCES ACTING ON THE SURFACE OF A SHIP STERN

A method for analyzing the propeller-induced vibratory forces acting on the surface of a ship stern is presented. The conventional procedure for analyzing hull surface forces is to integrate the propeller-related unsteady pressure over the hull surface. Following a theoretical approach, the conventional procedure entails estimating the pressure due to diffraction of the propeller-induced water flow by the ship hull. This is very difficult to do realistically. This paper shows how hull surface forces can be analyzed without the need for specific knowledge of the diffraction pressure. The pressure integration is avoided by utilizing a special application of Green's Theorem. The computation effort needed in order to attain a higher level of realism can be substantially reduced as a result. Comparisons are made with earlier calcuations performed on a model of the DE 1040.
