THE COMPONENTS OF THE PROPULSIVE EFFICIENCY OF SHIPS IN RELATION TO THE DESIGN PROCEDURE

The naval architect making proposals for new ships is often faced with the problem of how to find the correct propulsive efficiencies for the ships. In spite of much research work spent upon the question through more than one hundred years, there is still no standard procedure to be used. The naval architect receives data from different ship towing tanks and research establishments, and these data are often given in various ways and are based upon model experiments carried out differently. For further elucidation of the problems, a long series of experiments have been carried out and analyzed. The measurement accuracy is discussed. Finally a proposal for a design procedure is given.
