Title : 3d flow developmend around a propeller in open water.
Flow calculations performed by : Petros Chassapoyiannis
Description :

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 towing basin.

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.

Calculation conditions : 
Marine propeller DTNSRDC-4119
uniform inflow , j=0.833
