Abstract:

As part of its overall project to adapt controllable pitch propellers to the needs of high speed combatant ships, the David W. Taylor Naval Ship Research and Development Center DTNSRDC conducted a series of resistance and propulsion experiments on a model of the RV ATHENA. These experiments were conducted to provide estimates of power requirements with design propellers for blade loading calculations. This report provides experimental conditions for setting up the blade loading model experiments. The estimated correlation allowance between full-scale data and model data with design propellers was found to be 0.00065.
