Abstract

There is a particular challenge with a propulsion system for a vessel using air lubrication (ALS) or an air cavity system (ACC). A displacement ship employing air lubrication has a stream of bubbles moving through the propeller stream tube which will affect its performance. A propeller located behind an air cavity will also be subjected to a vortex stream of air, vapour, and water as it flows past the stern ramp or closure of the cavity.
