Description/Abstract

This paper compares experimental results with numerical simulations using three different body-force propeller
models. The results demonstrate that as long as the radial variation of axial and tangential momentum generated
by the propeller are included, the influence of the unsteady propeller flow can be removed and calculations with
a steady propeller model can be performed for the evaluation of the influence of the propeller on the rudder.
