Did you know that the pitch of a propeller can be modified? This process – half art form, half science – provides us some flexibility for correcting performance problems or even re-using propellers with different engines and gears after repowering. In this course, we will discuss how to identify a required pitch change, the practical limitations for repitching a propeller blade, and the physical geometric changes that occur during a propeller repitching. This certificate course is appropriate for propeller repair shops, propulsion equipment vendors, naval architects, and boat builders.
This course has been endorsed by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) for the completion of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours.
