PREDICTION OF PROPELLER INDUCED HULL PRESSURES BY MEANS OF A MEDIUM-SIZE CAVITATION TUNNEL

The examination of wake/propeller interaction at the design stage of a ship is very important to achieving high propulsion efficiency and low levels of noise and vibration. This examination may be carried out quickly and easily by means of a medium-size cavitation tunnel, which is inexpensive to operate. The theoretical background for the performance and analysis of the tests is given, together with a correlation between model tests and full-scale measurements.
