N2 - This book deals with flows over propellers operating behind ships,
and the hydrodynamic forces and moments which the propeller
generates on the shaft and on the ship hull.The first part of the
text is devoted to fundamentals of the flow about hydrofoil
sections (with and without cavitation) and about wings. It then
treats propellers in uniform flow, first via advanced actuator
disc modelling, and then using lifting-line theory. Pragmatic
guidance is given for design and evaluation of performance,
including the use of computer modelling.The second part covers the
development of unsteady forces arising from operation in
non-uniform hull wakes. First, by a number of simplifications,
various aspects of the problem are dealt with separately until the
full problem of a non-cavitating, wide-bladed propeller in a wake
is treated by a new and completely developed theory. Next, the
complicated problem of an intermittently cavitating propeller in a
wake and the pressures and forces it exerts on the shaft and on
the ship hull is examined. A final chapter discusses the
optimization of efficiency of compound propulsors. The authors
have taken care to clearly describe physical concepts and
mathematical steps. Appendices provide concise expositions of the
mathematical techniques used.
