The development of hydrodynamics: 1860–2010

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)

In the early 1860s, little was really understood about ship resistance and many of the ideas on powering at that time were erroneous. Propeller design was very much a question of trial and error. The power installed in ships was often wrong and it was clear that there was a need for a method of estimating the power to be installed in order to attain a certain speed. However, over the following 150 years, significant development was made in estimating ship propulsive power.
