We are mainly engaged in the applied basic research of hydrodynamics, structural mechanics, ship vibration & noise reduction and development of deepsea vehilces and high performance ships.

POSITION:HOME-Research-Ship Propulsion

Ship Propulsion

Research Directions

• Design method of ship rear propeller coupled with ship hull
• Prediction of hydrodynamic performance of propeller by steady and unsteady panel method
• CFD method of ship's rear propeller performance (steady and unsteady force, cavitation and fluctuating pressure)
• Computational fluid dynamics of propeller and the flow around the hull
• Prediction method and characteristics of hydrodynamic noise of propeller
• Design of ship energy saving device (ESD) and evaluation of energy saving effect
• Propeller model overall performance test technology
• Design and development of semi-submerged propeller driving device
• Design technology of hydrodynamic test facilities

Research Results

Propeller Design Method
CSSRC has begun to establish a new theoretical design method. Based on the original lift line design and lift surface theoretical design, it adds the steady/unsteady hydrodynamic calculation of panel method or RANS equation, cavitation check, design of new blade profile, finite element analysis strength method of large skewed propeller and graphic display to the design method and program package.
