DETERMINATION OF SHIP AND WEATHER DEPENDENT DRAG COEFFICIENTS FOR THE DIMENSIONING OF THE MAIN ENGINE AND THE CONTROL OF THE ENGINE AND PROPELLER LOAD ON THE SEA. FINAL REPORT

BESTIMMUNG VON SCHIFFSSPEZIFISCHEN WETTERBEDINGTEN WIDERSTANDSBELWERTEN ZUR AUSLEGUNG DES HAUPTMOTORS UND ZUR UEBERWACHUNG DER MOTOR- UND PROPELLERBELASTUNG IM SEEBETRIEB. ABSCHLUSSBERICHT

The method applied here uses the marine screw propeller as measuring instrument for resistance changes. From the ship's logs the mean of the entries of ship's velocity, fuel consumption, motor output and speed rotation were evaluated in connection with weather and operating conditions. Moreover, results of model tests, free-running diagrams of propellers as well as general ship data were used. Ship logs and data of 15 ships of different size were put at our disposal by different German Shipping companies.
