Abstract:

With the addition of a motor-propeller system to the lower rudder of USS ALBACORE AGSS 569 the possibility existed that local resonance frequencies of the rudder within the operating speed range of the ship would occur and hence increase the vibratory response of the ship to propeller-blade forces acting on the rudder. Theoretical analysis indicates, however, that the addition of the motor-propeller system to the rudder would not cause excessive vibrations. This conclusion was verified experimentally. Author
