Design optimization of water-jet propulsion systems for hydrofoils by Pearson Robert Gill Download PDF EPUB FB2

Thesis (Degree of Ocean. Eng. and M.S. in M.E.)--Massachusetts Institute of Technology, The application of waterjets is rapidly growing and they are increasingly being chosen for propulsion in high-speed crafts.

Waterjet as a propulsion system of a vessel is also favorable when it comes to maneuvering, appendage drag, draft and fuel consumption at high speeds. Furthermore, waterjet system has recently gained more credibility for its acceptable efficiency because of the advent of.

I'm designing a hydrofoil boat with fully submerged foils which will be attached to a torpedo like structure which I plan to house a water jet turbine.

I've carried out CFD analysis on my foil designs and have a lift of around kn with a NACA, and a drag of around kN for the whole structure at 20m/s which i'm taking as maximum resistance. A pump-jet, hydrojet, or water jet is a marine system that produces a jet of water for mechanical arrangement may be a ducted propeller (axial-flow pump), a centrifugal pump, or a mixed flow pump which is a combination of both centrifugal and axial design also incorporates an intake to provide water to the pump and a nozzle to direct the flow of water out of the pump.

In the water jet propulsion system with a positive displacement (PD) pump, the nozzle, which converts pressure energy into kinetic energy, is one of the key parts exerting great influence on the reactive thrust and the efficiency of the system due to its high working pressure and easily occurring cavitation characteristics.

Unlike a powerboat or motorboat that uses an external propeller in the water below or behind the boat, a jetboat draws the water from under the boat through an intake and into a pump-jet inside the boat, before expelling it through a nozzle at the stern.

Jetboats were originally designed by Sir William. Octopus inspires silent propulsion system for boats and subs By only people currently developing such systems. process behind the development of the water jet engine, (jet skis, etc.) if I.

The waterjet drive is currently considered the most important innovation, ever, in marine propulsion systems. The waterjet drive has gained acceptance as the leading means of propulsion for all types of high-speed crafts, ferries, workboats, patrol boats, landing crafts and the like.

(if you find the right jetski, for the right price, maybe use a portion of the jetski hull and add to it. Based on characteristic of water jet, there are two important factors to product the thrust. One factor is pump speed and the other is the nozzle diameter.

So, The significant optimization be required in order to overcome the existing water jet propulsion problem. In this paper, the water jet propulsion system model be studied at first, and then pump and nozzle optimization be : Chang Tao Wang, Feng Long Kan, Lan Guang Zhao, Wei Wei.

Sarum Hydraulics was having a good scout round the Southampton Boat Show for jets. At the other end of the scale, we were looking at the highly regarded Williams tenders with their water jet units built in.

Water jets have certainly worked for Williams and provide the cornerstone of their design, and one quickly notices a lot of Williams. Update: New Revision (/09/10) on "" This Water Jet Drive has been developed fo.

[4 Jun 00] The following is quoted from the book Hydrofoils by Christopher Hook and A. Kermode: “One serious problem with both these systems [ladder foils and V-foils] is air entry, for by the very nature of the design, some parts of the foil, or some of the foils, are always at or near the surface; they are in fact surface-piercing.

Houman Nikmanesh wanted a personal propulsion device to move himself or a small watercraft through the water. Along with his team at Bixpy he has developed the Bixpy Jet, a modular and portable water-jet propulsion system.
