Join Donald MacPherson, HydroComp’s Technical Director, for a unique learning opportunity for those involved in the technical specification and on-the-ship performance of marine propellers.

Topics to “demystify” propellers for participants will cover:

– The basics of propeller operation as part of the larger propulsion system
– An introduction to how propeller hydrodynamics really works
– Selecting a suitable propeller style or model from available options
– Calculation of propeller performance to meet workflow requirements
– Collecting and using ship trial information, with introduction to the “overload” test
– Troubleshooting common problems; and what is – and is not – a problem with the propeller

Note: This isn’t software training, so you do not need to be users of our NavCad, PropExpert or PropCad software to attend.
Bring your questions for lively discussions!
