Abstract:

The report deals with the analytical investigation of the thrust augmentation, lift forces and mixing properties of a two-phase flow propulsionlift system which has application to Air Cushion Vehicles ACV and Surface Effect Ships SES. The results of Water-Augmented Vehicle WAVE computer program investigations show that significant thrust augmentation can be obtained by the injection of spray inherently produced through the interaction of ACVs and SESs with water surfaces. In addition, propulsive efficiencies of 60 can be obtained with relatively quiet operation. Modified author abstract
