USER'S MANUAL FOR A FORTRAN IV COMPUTER PROGRAM FOR CALCULATING PROPELLER/STERN BOUNDARY-LAYER INTERACTION ON AXISYMMETRIC BODIES

A computer program which calculates the inviscid approximation of propeller/stern boundary-layer interaction is given. The description includes a summary of the inviscid theory and the assumptions used, an outline of the numerical procedure and computation method, a numerical example, FORTRAN listing, and input and output instructions. This program is designed to compute the effective velocity profile from the measured nominal velocity profile for propeller design. (Author)
