Resistance and Propulsion JEE333

Note:

Introduction

To provide an understanding and working knowledge of resistance and propulsion of ships. Experimental and theoretical methods are covered with an emphasis on application to design. Students are shown the theory behind these methods and are required to demonstrate usage of the methods (both theory and experiment) to predict resistance and hence propulsion requirements. This unit builds on the knowledge of fluid mechanics and applies it to practical design scenarios.

Note

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.

Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.

Learning Outcomes

  • Combine the components of resistance to determine the total resistance of a ship hull.
  • Analyse the performance of marine propulsion devices in open water and when interacting with a hull form
  • Apply experimental, empirical and extrapolation methods to evaluate the performance of ships at full-scale.
  • Evaluate the application and limitations of engineering estimation methods for determining ship powering requirements
