This two part series on Hull-Propeller Interaction complements our previous webinar on propeller-radiated noise with a focus on Wake Fields (Part 1) and Propeller Performance (Part 2). We discuss in Part 1 how velocities into the propeller are affected by the hull and are defined as a “wake field”. We further explain the various types of wake fields, break them down into useful “quality” parameters, and introduce recommended criteria for wake parameters and hull-propeller geometry. Join Don MacPherson for this 30-minute webinar that will introduce some of the key concepts about wake fields that are needed by naval architects and designers to ensure best outcomes for noise & vibration, propeller efficiency, and overall performance.
