Abstract
The strength and vibration characteristics of the original NRC 45 and the new NSMB 5363 propellers for CFAV QUEST are predicted using the Finite Element Program PVAST. The static blade loadings for the analysis were produced with the M.I.T. Program PINV 4. Predictions are presented for stresses, static displacements, and natural frequencies of vibration for both propellers. Static stress results obtained using PVAST are shown to be in good agreement with those supplied by the Netherlands Ship Model Basin for the NSMB 5363 propellers.
