This paper presents a numerical procedure to investigate the hydrodynamic performance and flow field of propeller with the aid of dynamic mesh. The purpose of the study is to validate a hybrid mesh generation strategy and dynamic mesh technology. Computations were performed at various advance ratios following experimental conditions. Results for both global and local flow quantities are discussed and compared with experimental data. The predicted thrust and torque are in good agreement with the experimental values. The overall results suggest that the present approach is practicable for actual propeller design procedure.
