Inland vessel wakefield & aftship optimization - case study report

No wakefields are available during the design of propellers for inland water vessels. What can be achieved when with use of full-scale CFD calculations the wakefield will be calculated. What consequences will this have for the propeller design? Which improvements for the inland vessel design and propeller design can be expected?

To solve these questions full-scale CFD calculations will be carried out for a typical inland water vessel. Propeller designs will be made based on the traditional approach and based on the calculated wakefield, the differences in pressure pulses and cavitation extent will be calculated, to demonstrate the propeller improvements. The aftship shape will be improved to demonstrate the potential gains that can be achieved using this tool.
