Title : 3d
flow developmend around a propeller in open water.
Flow calculations performed
by : Petros
For the case of a propeller operating
in uniform inflow , the flow
is purely inviscid potential flow.
The idealized case of uniform inflow
occurs in the model testing stage.
Each model propeller is tested and
evaluated over a range of operating
conditions in open water , driven
from a long extended shaft in a
This case of flow is modelled using
a vortex particle method, where
the blades are represented as lifting
surfaces, the hub as a non-lifting
body and their wake as vortex particles.
