    Hi All,
    I am working on CFD simulation of a surface piercing propeller. I have modeled 841- B Surface piercing propeller(Olofsson 1996)...So far i have manage to get comparable results , for open water performance of the propeller.

    Next i want to show how at high speeds , surface piercing propellers are more efficient than conventional propellers. Can anyone please suggest me any literature for designing of a surface piercing propeller for a particular ship.

    or any methodology to design a surface piercing propeller...

    Send a PM to Frosty - he fitted surface piercing propulsion to his boat at Phuket - - or email Bill Barry-Cotter who races internationally as Maritimo Racing from the Gold Coast in Queensland

    Under "Propulsion>Surface drives" you find the thread "Surface drive litterature". Start there!
