A PRACTICAL ANALYSIS PROCEDURE FOR MARINE PROPELLERS USING CURVED FINITE ELEMENTS

The paper concerns the development of techniques which take full advantage of the capabilities of curved finite elements as applied to the problem of stress analysis of marine propellers. The advantages of the proposed techniques are discussed in regard to data generation, analysis and presentation of results. Hypothetical and conventional propeller forms are analyzed in order to verify and show the capabilities of the proposed techniques.
