The design and construction of model ship propeller blades in hybrid composite materials
Molland, A.F. and Turnock, S.R. (1991) The design and construction of model ship propeller blades in hybrid composite materials. Composites Manufacturing, 2, (1), 39-47. (doi:10.1016/0956-7143(91)90157-C).
A description is given of the design and construction in hybrid composite materials of a model ship propeller for use in wind tunnel tests The reasons for the choice of a glass/carbon reinforced composite material for the blade manufacture are discussed. Results are presented for tests carried out on hybrid composite samples prepared by wet-Iav-up by hand under practical manufacturing conditions. The design stress levels used in the final design were based on the test results for the samples. A description is given of the blade design and the production method. Successful operation of the propeller has confirmed the suitable application of the chosen material for the blades.
