Theoretical equations which provide means for computing the propeller-generated forces and moments are derived. The results of captive tests of eight variations of a large scale semi-hull and propeller combination at zero forward speed both with and without a lateral velocity are discussed. Based on the high lateral force to power ratios measured in these tests, it is concluded that tandem propellers, in a wide range of configurational variations, can be efficiently employed for many low speed, highly maneuverable vehicles.
