Abstract:

The paper gives a detailed description of the mechanism, introducing fluctuating propeller shaft forces. The hydrodynamic phenomena, initiating these force fluctuations, are briefly discussed. An analysis is made of the dynamic behaviour of the propulsion system of a turbine-driven ship. The prediction of the full size fluctuating shaft forces based on model measurements and additional analyses, shows a reasonable agreement with the measured full size values. Investigations into the determination of the elasticity of the thrust block are necessary. Author
