AbstractThis study presents the results of testing carried out on a model propeller developed and manufactured as part of a partnership between the Institute for Ocean Technology, Memorial University and industrial partners Oceanic Consulting and Thordon Bearings. Testing was conducted to investigate the performance and cavitation characteristics of a propeller with a given propeller hub geometry, and it will be compared with future tests to develop a fuller understanding of the effects of propeller-hub geometry on performance characteristics.
