PROPELLER EXCITATION AND RESPONSE OF 230 000 TDW TANKERS

A comprehensive investigation concerning propulsion, cavitation and vibration has been carried out on two 230,000 TDW tanker ships. In the report the results concerning vibration are reported. Full scale measurements of propeller induced pressure fluctuations at different positions on the stern, static and dynamic thrust and torque in the shaft, as well as vibratory response in different parts of the structure have been carried out.
