DESIGNING FOR PROPELLER ACTION IN HARBOURS

G.A. Hamill, J.A. McGarvey

Abstract


The scour produced by the action of a ship's propeller is an increasing problem. There is a need for an accurate method of velocity perdition so that adequate steps can be taken to design suitable bed protection systems. The velocity characteristics of the jet produced by the rotating propeller are presented as an aid to the engineer.
