PROBLEMS IN FULL SCALE PROPULSION FROM A SHIPBUILDER'S VIEWPOINT

The paper presents a generalized discussion of the problems of determining power and speed from the results of model tests with special reference to scale effect. Correlation methods used in Kockum's yards are outlined with examples of their application to large tankers and ships. The trend towards larger ships has revealed some limitations of the method for computing full scale revolutions, and further research is considered necessary in this area. The paper concludes with a review of work on the measurement of wake field, cavitation and vibration.
