Advances in full-scale wake-field predictions and the implications for the propeller design
In the design of propellers for today's advanced ships important design trade-offs have to be made regarding propulsion efficiency, cavitation-related vibration excitation, inboard noise and blade erosion. For some types of ships the design margins are extremely small and successful propellers can only be designed when the ship's hull generates a wake distribution that is sufficiently homogeneous.
