Intro
Independent evaluation of the hydrodynamic performance of ship propellers is a very popular MARIN service. With essential feedback from customers like the Royal Netherlands Navy, steady advances are being made in model testing techniques and computational methods that predict key characteristics of naval propellers. Multi-objective optimisation techniques allow propeller designers to define design trade-off studies and in turn, end-users can sharpen their design specifications.
