SOME ASPECTS OF BOW-THRUSTER DESIGN

Guides are presented for the design of bow thruster/tunnel endings for maximum thrust and minimum increase in hull resistance. In addition, the factors affecting producible thrust and required thrust are discussed. Curves and equations are given for estimating lateral forces and moments due to wind and current.
