Computational Analysis of Marine-Propeller Performance Using Transition-Sensitive Turbulence Modeling

  title={Computational Analysis of Marine-Propeller Performance Using Transition-Sensitive Turbulence Modeling},
  author={Xiao Jiao Wang and Keith F. A. Walters},
Almost all computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations of flow around marine propellers use turbulence models that are only well suited for fully turbulent flows, which in some cases may lead to accuracy degradation in the prediction of propeller performance characteristics. The discrepancy between computed thrust and torque and corresponding experimental data increases with increasing propeller load. This is due in part to the fact that a large laminar flow region is found to exist and… CONTINUE READING
