A propeller technology capable of substantially reducing the underwater radiated noise(URN) generated by ships’ propellers has been developed by Oscar Propulsion Limited and the University of Strathclyde.
The patented PressurePores™ system reduces propeller tip vortex cavitation by applying a small number of strategically placed holes in the propeller blades. The addition of these pressure-relieving holes allows ships to operate with a more silent propeller.
Lars Eikeland, Marine Director, Oscar Propulsion, said: “Underwater radiated noise is one of the most adverse environmental by-products from commercial shipping, yet unlike other forms of marine pollution, there is currently no international legislation in place to prevent or reduce this source of environmental damage.
Following four years of comprehensive computational fluid dynamics(CFD), modelling and cavitation tunnel tests during the solution’s development phase at Strathclyde, it was demonstrated that PressurePores can reduce cavitation volume by almost 14% and URN by up to 10dB.
Results were further verified in tests on the sub-cavitating propellers on Princess Royal, a 19m research catamaran operated by Newcastle University. And last year, CFD Finite Element(FE) propeller stress tests were successfully completed in accordance with classification society DNV rules.
It is interesting to note that propeller cavitation can generate as much as 188dB of underwater radiated noise and can be heard by marine fauna 100 miles away.
According to the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, anything above 160db can pose a significant risk to marine life.
While Oscar Propulsions technology is suitable for all types of vessels, they are particularly suitable for naval vessels, yachts, fishing fleets, offshore vessels and cruise & research ships operating in sensitive environments. The technology can be applied to all types of propellers, including pods and thrusters.
