Understanding the interactions between a hull and a propeller is a common problem naval architects have to solve to provide efficient powering solutions. The world of elite sport is becoming increasingly scientific in a similar drive for increased performance. To allow a kayak’s hull and paddle to be optimised, their interactions have to be considered to provide a realistic race scenario. It is therefore proposed that numerical techniques currently used by naval architects could be applied to… CONTINUE READING
