JIP Proposals

The Wageningen F-series Propellers

Systematic fixed-pitch propeller series for high efficiency
In a Joint Industry Project (JIP) a standard series of fixed-pitch propellers will be developed which encompasses
design features of contemporary propellers. The new series will be designed for best achievable efficiency, while
simultaneously taking into account requirements on cavitation, noise and vibrations. The need for the series results
from the growing awareness of safety, ecological and comfort aspects in ship design, and the increasing
electrification of ship propulsion systems.
