Those data refer to propellers of specific geometry (number of blades, blade area, pitch and skew of blades). The estimation of drag and torque of an arbitrary propeller considered in analysis of ship resistance or propulsion is laborious. The authors collected and reviewed test data available in the literature. Based on collected data there were developed the empirical formulae for estimation of hydrodynamic drag and torque acting on locked screw propeller. Supplementary CFD computations were carried out in order to prove the applicability of the formulae to modern moderately skewed screw propellers.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.08.03.16}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Ship Operation, Locked Screw Propeller, Propulsion System, Propeller Drop, Propeller Torque, CFD Computations, Hydrodynamics, Sailboat Fixed Blade Propeller} }
