Project Innovations

  • Unique ship-scale PIV measurements of propeller flow to address wake scale effect uncertainty.
  • Propeller thrust measurements during the sea trials to separate the propeller efficiency from the propulsive efficiency of the hull-propeller system.
  • Assessment of sea state conditions by self-propelled buoy C-DRONE.
  • Model tests measurement will be performed in two reputable facilities in order to assess repeatability.
  • The tests will be made after the sea trials to ensure the trials conditions are replicated.
