The research found that CFRP exhibits the same, if not superior strength to the aluminum-bronze composite materials used in conventional propellers. Due to ...

Study on Performance of a Ship Propeller Using a Composite MaterialRecently, applying a composite material to ship propellers is considered. A phenomenon of the composite material propeller is to deform elastically while a propeller rotating. Using this phenomenon, the design of a new concept propeller which is a high efficiency and reduces a cavitation by adapting to ship wake is studied. This present paper will describe the composite propeller performances (propeller characteristics and cavitation performance) under the elastic deformation.

Performance evaluation of composite marine propeller using L8 ...11 Nov 2011 ... 1. Introduction. Marine propeller is a component which forms the principal part of ships since it gives the required propulsion. Fiber reinforced plastics are extensively used in the manufacturing of various structures including the marine propeller. The hydrodynamic aspects of the design of composite marine propellers have attracted attention because they are important in predicting the deflection and performance of the propeller blade. A procedure for calculating the ...

The Motorship | Composites in ship building28 Aug 2015 ... The Taiko Maru, a 499 GT chemical tanker owned by Sowa Kaiun YK, recently became the first merchant vessel to have a composite propeller installed. During sea trials, the propeller required nine percent less horsepower to operate compared to conventional aluminium-bronze propellers. The propeller was developed and produced by Nakashima Propeller with support from ClassNK, which granted approval for the design and manufacturing process of the propeller ...

Propeller - WikipediaHe had tested his propeller in February 1826 on a small ship that was manually driven. He was successful in using his bronze screw propeller on an adapted steamboat (1829). His ship "Civetta" with 48 gross register tons, reached a speed of about six knots (11 km/h). This was the first ship successfully driven by an Archimedes screw-type propeller. After a new steam engine had an accident (cracked pipe weld) his experiments were banned by the Austro-Hungarian police as ...

Composite propeller for Royal Navy minehunter : CompositesWorldWhen Airborne composites (The Hague, The Netherlands), a composites design and manufacturing firm, was awarded a contract by the Royal Netherlands Navy (RNLN) in 2004 to develop a prototype composite naval propeller, it faced a complex design brief. The RNLN wanted to explore a composite replacement for metallic propellers on its Alkmaar-class minehunting vessels ships tasked with the delicate and dangerous job of disarming live mines along hostile coastlines to ...

Wärtsilä Fixed Pitch PropellersA fixed pitch propeller is the choice when optimum efficiency, reliability and robustness are required. Fixed pitch propellers are usually installed for ocean going vessels, for example: Container vessels; Tankers; Bulk carriers; Dry cargo vessels; Passenger liners. Each ship's hull has its own characteristics. In order to achieve the highest possible overall efficiency of the vessel, the propeller must be perfectly matched with the engine and hull. Propeller designs are always tailored to the ...

applications of composites in marine industry - Technical Journals ...composites are rarely used on naval vessels because of their high cost. The feasibility of using composite in a wide variety of secondary structures and equipments of warships and submarine under investigation. For example, a major effort has been made for the development of composite propellers,. Propulsors and propulsion shafts. The composite are expected to Offer a number of important benefits over metal when used in propulsion systems, including lower cost, reduced weight, ...

Composite propeller - Wikipediacomposite propellers are made of an extremely strong, high-tech material. These propellers are produced using an injection molding process, which guarantees a high quality propeller every time. The composite propeller is a lightweight and environmentally friendly boat propeller. When a composite propeller hits debris, the propeller absorbs the impact energy, instead of transferring it to the lower unit; therefore, providing more protection for the drive train. Corrosion from salt water, ...
