SURVEY OF PROPULSIVE DEVICES FOR MERCHANT MARINE APPLICATION
An analysis is presented of the performance of conventional single and twin screws, contra-rotating propellers, noncavitating propellers in nozzles, and vertical axis propellers. An analysis is made of the influences of design parameters, principally thrust loading and blade strength, on the expected performance of supercavitating propellers.
