DEVELOPMENT OF MARINE PROPELLERS WITH BETTER CAVITATION PERFORMANCE, 2ND REPORT: EFFECT OF DESIGN LIFT COEFFICIENT FOR PROPELLERS WITH FLAT PRESSURE DISTRIBUTION

This paper describes studies that had three objectives: (1) to develop a method to obtain propeller blade section shapes having prescribed pressure distribution; (2) to design a series of new propellers with different design lift coefficients, defined as being the lift coefficients where the pressure distribution becomes flat; and (3) to investigate the effect of the design lift coefficient on the propeller open characteristics and the cavitation performance by experimentation with both the new series and, for comparison, an original MAU-type propeller.
