Marine Propulsion

is a second course in marine propellers and ship powering. The purpose of this course is to give students the principles of design and analysis of marine screw propellers and other propulsion devices. The course introduces various marine propulsion devices including conventional and unconventional propulsion systems. It covers methods of propeller design and propeller design philosophy. Emphasis is placed on the design of fixed-pitch propellers based on the lifting line theory and the design of ducted propellers. The student will also develop some insight into the design of other propulsion systems such as waterjets and sails.
