A DESIGN METHOD FOR CONVENTIONAL AND UNCONVENTIONAL PROPELLERS

In recent years several unconventional propellers, such as warped and loop-bladed types, have been developed to obtain better propulsive performance. A design method, based on a nonlinear acceleration potential, for such unconventional as well as conventional propellers is described. In evaluating a triple singular integral numerically, several steps have been taken to simiplify the computation without sacrificing the accuracy. Several design examples are also included.
