Waterjet Propulsion III


Waterjet Propulsion III

This conference organized by RINA (20-21 February, Gothenburg) will address latest developments in waterjet propulsion technology. The suitability of waterjets for high-speed ferries is almost universally accepted, and they are proven in this role. They have also increased their penetration into the small craft, leisure craft, and military craft markets. As the technology matures, designers need better information about performance, particularly how the hull/jet system interacts. Computational Fluid Dynamics is helping point the way, but traditional model testing and trials measurements are still important and operators continue to demand reliability.

Among many papers planned for this conference are:

  • A Waterjet Test Loop for the Tom Fink Cavitation Tunnel - describes the test loop as well as results from the testing of a generic fast ferry.
  • Waterjet Propulsion Noise – provides review of the prediction methods used by SSPA for noise and vibration design of a new waterjet vessel.
  • Theoretical and Practical Aspects of Erosion-Corrosion Control and Repair in Waterjet Installations - reviews causes of corrosion, evaluates suitability of methods of repair and considers methods of corrosion prevention.
  • Ventilated Waterjets - describes a ventilated waterjet without both nozzle and stator, which offer simple construction, reduced weight and a small volume waterduct.
  • 80-100 MW "Unified Propulsion Package" for the Very High Speed Sealift Trimaran (VHSST) – describes the main challenges faced in designing a waterjet for VHSST service
  • Field Experience of Reduction Gears in Waterjets Propulsion Systems - describes the various propulsion system gear arrangements.
  • Adelaide Proctor
