COMPARISON OF CAVITATION PHENOMENA BETWEEN THE ACTUAL AND MODEL PROPELLERS, AND EROSION SURVEY ON THE ACTUAL PROPELLER

Rapid expansion of the container transport system has led to increases in the speed and size of container ships. Development of the design of the propellers for a high-speed container ship with triple screws, which was built in 1972 for the service between Europe and Japan, is discussed. Cavitation study on the actual and model propellers, and erosion survey on the actual propellers after two years of service has shown that the design procedure gave good results. Order from: BSRA as No. 48,762.
