Mean long-term service parameters of transport ship propulsion system: Part I Screw propeller service parameters of transport ship sailing on a given shipping route

During ship sailing on a given shipping route in real weather conditions all propulsion system performance parameters of the ship change along with changes of instantaneous total resistance and speed of the ship. In this paper results of calculations are presented of distribution function and mean statistical values of screw propeller thrust, rotational speed and efficiency as well as propulsion engine power output and specific fuel oil consumption occurring on selected shipping routes. On this basis new guidelines for ship propulsion system design procedure are formulated.

Numerical analysis of influence of ship hull form modification on ship resistance and propulsion characteristics

After signing ship building contract shipyard's design office orders performance of ship resistance and propulsion model tests aimed at, apart from resistance measurements, also determination of ship speed, propeller rotational speed and propulsion engine power for the designed ship, as well as improvement of its hull form, if necessary. Range of ship hull modifications is practically very limited due to cost and time reasons. Hence numerical methods, mainly CFD ones are more and more often used for such tests. In this paper consisted of three parts, are presented results of numerical calculations of hull resistance, wake and efficiency of propeller operating in non-homogenous velocity field, performed for research on 18 hull versions of B573 ship designed and built by Szczecin Nowa Shipyard.

Calculation of the mean long-term service speed of transport ship: Part II Service speed of ship sailing on regular shipping route in real weather conditions

Service speed obtainable by a ship in real weather conditions when sailing on a given shipping route, is one of the major parameters which have great impact on ship operation costs. The so far used, very approximate method of service speed prediction based on "service margin", is very little exact. In this paper a new method based on additional ship resistance dependent on mean statistical parameters of wave and wind occurring on a given shipping route, is presented. The mean long-term service speed is calculated on the basis of the calculated additional resistance and the screw propeller and propulsion engine parameters. Also, a new definition of service margin and a way of its calculation is presented apart from the results of the mean service speed calculation depending on ship's type and size and shipping route.

Numerical analysis of influence of selected elements on effectiveness of streamline rudder

During designing steering gear for large fast transport ships (e.g. container carriers), shipowners usually put forward strong demands concerning ship manoeuvrability. It means that streamline rudders should be characterized by a high effectiveness, i.e. fast increasing values of lifting force in function of rudder angle and large values of lifting force related to rudder area. As gabarites of streamline rudder depend on a form and draught of stern part of ship's hull, an improvement of rudder effectiveness can be reached by an appropriate selection of rudder profile and application of additional elements to rudder blade.

This paper presents results of numerical investigations (by using CFD methods) of hydrodynamic forces acting on rudder blades of the same gabarites but based on different profiles. Such calculations were also performed for selected rudder blades fitted with additional elements intended for the improving of rudder effectiveness.

Numerical analysis of influence of streamline rudder on screw propeller efficiency

During designing the ship its designer tends to obtain as high as possible efficiency of ship propulsion system. To this end on certain ships additional elements such as: nozzles, half-nozzles or suitably profiled fins attached to underwater part of ship's hull before screw propeller, are applied (sometimes they are intended for the mitigating of vibration resulting from operation of screw propeller). Another device which affects operation of screw propeller is streamline rudder capable of improving its efficiency (most of the transport ships is fitted with single screw propeller and streamline rudder placed behind it). In this paper the influence of streamline rudder on screw propeller efficiency has been examined with the use of numerical methods of fluid dynamics (CFD). The obtained results indicate a very favourable influence of the rudder on screw propeller efficiency. Research in this area is continued and its results concerning impact of particular geometrical parameters of rudder on screw propeller efficiency, will be presented in the future.

Numerical analysis of effect of asymmetric stern of ship on its screw propeller efficiency

During designing the ship its designer tends to achieve as-high-as possible efficiency of ship's propulsion system. The greatest impact on the efficiency is introduced by ship's screw propeller whose efficiency depends not only on its geometry but also distribution of wake current velocity. To change wake current distribution and improve propeller efficiency an asymmetric form is usually applied to stern part of ship hull. This paper presents results of numerical analysis of wake current velocity distribution, performed by using a CFD method for a B 573 ship of symmetric stern and the same ship of an asymmetric stern. Next, the mean values of screw propeller efficiency in non-homogenous water velocity field were calculated for both the hull versions of B 573 ship.
