Abstract:

Model Propeller 4716-nozzle system was characterized in open water, ahead and backing. Model propeller 4716 was also characterized, ahead and backing, without the nozzle. The propeller-nozzle system and propeller performance data are presented in this report. The results indicate that under heavily loaded conditions, especially in backing, the propeller-nozzle system is more efficient than the propeller alone at the same loading. Author
