Abstract
The geometry of marine propellers is described in the report. The types of data used for blade section description are covered and methods for generating blade section leading and trailing edge forms are derived. A method for generating the blade tip from minimal data is given. The computer program BLADE developed for generating 3 dimensional propeller blade coordinates is described together with examples of its graphic output.
