Paper Title:
Four Quadrants Numerical Prediction for Hydrodynamic Performance of Open-Water Propeller
  Abstract

In order to obtain the four quadrants hydrodynamic performance of open water propeller by means of CFD, a mathematic model of three dimensional coordinates points was established and programmed using Matlab based on the basic parameters of propeller. A smooth model propeller was made by importing these points into front end software. Then taking AU model for example, numerical simulations of propeller turning ahead while going ahead, turning ahead while going astern, turning astern while going ahead and turning astern while going astern were carried out. At the same time, the thrust and torque coefficients were presented. The simulation results showed good agreement with the results of tank test. The influence of mesh generation and computational domain on open-water performance were also discussed.
