AbstractFriction measurements were made on the K & R opens boat propeller dynamometer in the clear water tow tank. An existing dummy hub, fairing, and cone nut were fitted to the dynamometer. Friction torque was measured over a range of shaft speeds and for different lengths of time over a two day test program. The aim was to measure the effect of running time on friction torque and to check the practice of taring and zeroing.
