Development of new theories and computer programs in the course of recent years has made it possible to predict the short term and long term motions of ships in irregular seas. It has also been found that a predictable relationship exists between the wave system, the motions of the ship and the dynamic loading of the propeller blade and shaft. Until now these influences have not been included in the design procedures for propellers and shafts except as a safety factor through low nominal stresses. It is the writer's opinion that suitable, simplified methods now exist for prediction of the wave effects on propellers in the design stage.
