Abstract:

A project was established at the David W. Taylor Naval Ship R and D DTNSRDC to assist the U.S. Coast Guard in the evaluation of a design for a 270-foot Medium Endurance Cutter WMEC. This report presents powering predictions from fully appended model experiments with stock propellers 4507 and 4508 at two displacements corresponding to a 13-foot 3.96 m and 14-foot 4.27 m drafts respectively. Prior to the powering experiments an optimum rudder angle was selected at the design displacement and speed. Author
