822 “Trade-Offs in the Design of Sub-Cavitating Propellers”



Trade-Offs in the Design of Sub-Cavitating Propellers”, by Peter van Oossanen, Published in “International Shipbuilding Progress”, Vol. 23, No. 264, August 1976 (ID No. 822).

In this paper an account is presented of the problems involved in the selection of specific values for the design parameters of marine propellers. The views and data presented are of a general nature and illustrate some of the choices involved in the design of a screw propellers such that the extent of cavitation is minimized or controlled.
