Abstract:

Three tractor propellers, designed for PCH, were tested on the PCH model configuration in the TMB 36-inch variable pressure water tunnel. Cavitation characteristics, thrust deduction curves, and sketches of the cavitation of each propeller were obtained. Of the three propellers tested, only one was more efficient than a previously tested tandem propeller arrangement. Author
