AFT END SHAPING TO LIMIT VIBRATION

The design and operational experience over the last decade with nine selected ships are reviewed. Technical particulars of the ships and general comments on levels of propeller excited vibration are given, and details of waterlines and sections, together with contours of "Taylor" wake through the propeller disc derived from model experiments are presented. An empirical method of selecting propeller, diameter, rate of revolutions and main propulsion machinery for a given wake for minimum levels of cavitation vibration is described. The assessment of vibration levels is discussed.
