MAR3015 : Small Craft Powering
- Offered for Year: 2013/14
- Module Leader(s): Prof. Mehmet Atlar
- Owning School: Marine Sciences & Technology
|Semester 2 Credit Value:||10|
The module aims to develop knowledge and understanding of:
A1. physical phenomenon and associated hydrodynamic theory relating to advanced hull and propeller flow, and hence resulting ship resistance and propulsion.
A2. Methods, which are mainly computational and based on potential flow theory, to model the above mentioned hydrodynamic properties (in A1) of a ship hull and its propulsor.
A3. Methods in general for prediction of resistance for relatively small, high speed and advanced conventional/unconventional craft.
A4. Advanced methods for design and analysis of conventional propellers and basic design methods for high-speed propellers.
Outline Of Syllabus
Since the course is consisting of the topics related to 'resistance' and 'propulsion', the following syllabuses are listed, as separate groups accordingly, for the resistance and propulsion topics. However, they are lectured in parallel as one hour for the resistance and the following hour for the propulsion topic per week.
Topics include: Nature of hull forms; Nature of hip flow (resistance & wake): Basic theory for computational flow & resistance; Computational methods for prediction of flow around the hull and that of ship resistance.
(CFD- Software Demonstration, if possible); Design features and resistance prediction methods for: Semi-displacement/semi-planing vessels, Catamarans; SWATH ships.

Teaching Rationale And Relationship
Lectures in the classroom provide the students with general understanding of and familiarity to the fundamentals of advanced (ship) hull and propulsor flows (IKO1) and associated computational tools (ISO1); to estimate resistance and propulsor performance using these tools (IKO4); to be able to predict the resistance characteristics of high-speed conventional/ unconventional hull forms and its high-speed, cavitating propeller (ISO2, ISO3).
Resistance and propulsion aspects of all ship types, particularly high-speed craft, are broad, diverse and dynamic while this specific course has relatively limited lecturing hours. The students are therefore strongly recommended and guided to read classic and the state-of-the-art papers to cover wider range of vehicles/propulsors and to catch-up with the latest developments in this fast developing subject area.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners

Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The written examination allows the students to demonstrate their basic knowledge and understanding of the subject as well as to demonstrate their problem solving skills through short subject specific problems, under time pressure as reuqired in industry (ISO1-3) and (IKO1-6).
The Graduate Skills Framework entries indicated as 'A' are also assessed in this way.
