Problem (3)
A large single screwed tanker was originally designed to achieve a service speed of 15 knots
with a steam turbine developing 23900 kW at a propeller rate of rotation of 85 rpm. The 6
bladed propeller corresponding to those conditions has a diameter of 8.23m and mean face
pitch ratio of 0.82.
For economic reasons the service speed of the ship has been reduced to 13.5 knots
corresponding to machinery power of 16800 kW. Assuming that the torque identity wake
fraction, wQ=0.40, the shafting efficiency, s=0.98, and using the diagram provided,
determine the propeller rate of rotation in reduced power condition and the corresponding
open water propeller efficiency.
It is anticipated that further economic gains could be achieved by fitting a new propeller, the
rate of rotation is reduced such that in the reduced power condition. Determine new propeller
rate of rotation, the diameter and mean face pitch of the proposed propeller and the increase
in open water efficiency.

The propeller of an oil product tanker is to have diameter and fixed pitch in relation to full
load trial performance and its blade surface area is to be adequate to minimize the risk of
cavitation in service in ballast condition. It is estimated that on trial with the engine
developing 8650 rpm at 212.5 rpm, the ship speed will be 16.03 knots. Using the diagram
provided and following data, determine the diameter and mean face pitch of the propeller to
satisfy these conditions.

predicted to be 16.9 knots and the propeller rate of rotation, 119.0 rpm. Using the following
data and the diagram provided determine the required blade surface area and the
corresponding BAR,
Torque identity wake fraction = 0.4

Problem (7)
An ore patrol vessel is to be fitted with two diesel engines geared to a single shaft and driving
a 4 bladed controllable pitch propeller. Each engine has a break power of 1501 kW and the
propeller rate of rotation is kept constant at 225 rpm.
Using the diagrams provided, determine the diameter, mean face pitch and blade surface area
of a propeller suitable for one engine cruise condition for which the ship speed Vs=15 knots
and the torque identity wake fraction, wQ=0.24, immersion to shaft centerline, H=3.05 and
shafting efficiency = 0.98.
In two engine condition the ship speed increased to 16.5 knots and the wake fraction remains
unchanged. Using the propeller diameter previously determine, calculate the increased
propeller pitch and the propeller efficiency and plot the operating condition on the cavitation
diagram. What conclusion would you draw from the result of the later calaulation?

PD = Ps s = 9500 x 0.98 = 9310 kW
PD = 2 n QD

By interpolation, J = 0.3625
J = Va / ND, Va = 0.3625 x 118.7 x 3.07 / 60 = 4.35 m/s
wT = 1 ( Va / Vs) = 1- (8.45 / 15.05) = 0.399

## From B4-65 chart, P/D = 0.69

P = 0.69 x 6.07 = 4.19m
Original pitch = 0.7 x 6.07 = 4.249 m

(b) A twin screw container ship has propellers of 6200mm with a pitch of 7500mm.
On trial the power transmitted by one shaft Ps as measured by a torsion-meter is 40550 HP
(metric) at 122 rpm and transmission efficiency is 98%.
With the dimensions used above the values of A and B in the above relations are 0.0578 and
0.0212 respectively.
Determine the apparent slip and hence the ship speed.
If the Taylor wake wT=0.07 what is the effective of propeller?

(b)
Ps = 40550 x2
PD = 0.98 x 40550 x2 = 59290.588 kW

Sa = 0.36
Vs = P n (1-Sa) = 7.5 x 112 x (1-0.36) /60 = 8.96 m/s = 17.39 knots
Va = Vs (1- wT) = (1-0.07) x 17.39 = 16.71 knots
Problem (10)

On trial, at a speed of 21 knots the measured delivered power is 11186 kW at 96 shaft rpm.
The propeller diameter is 6.7 m and the sea water density was 1026 kg / m3.
Form open water curve of the propeller the following pairs of values can be obtained:

## What is trial analysis wake?

Solution
PD = 2 n QD

10KQ = 0.313
By interpolation, J = 0.73
J = Va / ND, Va = 0.73 x 1.6 x 6.7 = 7.826 m/s = 15.196 knots
