Hydro dynamics
Hydro dynamics is caused by fluids in motion. Here the fluid is water.

Our vessel itself, rudder and propeler are body’s under influence of this
fluid in motion

Where noticable:
• The behaviour of the vessel in making a turn
• Interaction during overtaking and passing another vessel
• Bankeffect
• Shallow water effect (Squat)
• Unexpected effect when using bowthruster or forward tug whilst making speed ahead
• The special shape of a rudder and a propellerblade
• Duct or Nozzle around the propeller

V2
Continuity Law
The amount of liquid passing a random cross section of
a tube (river-waterflow) per time unit is constant
When the tube gets narrower, the velocity of the liquid
will increase
In formula: A1 x v1 = A2 x v2

Bernoulli’s Law

• ½mV2 + P1 = constant
• Which means that:
When the speed increases, the pressure in the (here)liquid
will reduce

## When the speed decreases, the pressure in the (here)liquid

increases

Propellers
See book for the items:

• The Pitch
• Propeller speed
• Slip
• Suction/Pressure

• Right/Left handed
• Fixed/Variable
Right handed – fixed propeller

Ship’s behaviour
Explain the movement of the stern of a vessel equipped with a

• Fixed pitch
• Right handed (Rh)
• Engine astern
• Left handed (Lh)
• Engine astern

• Variable pitch
• Right handed engine ahead as fixed Rh pitch, engine astern as fixed Lh
• Left handed engine ahead as fixed Lh pitch, engine astern as fixed Rh

Ship’s behaviour

CONCLUSIONS:

## • The direction of the movement of the stern of the vessel

is the turning direction (wheeling) of the propeller

## • The wheeling effect with engine ahead is hardly

noticeable, on astern however the influence is
significantly

## Bow- and stern thrusters

• Bow- and stern thrusters can only be used at lower
speeds. WHY?

steering. Why?

## • Your vessel is equipped with both stern thruster and

bow thruster. While proceeding foreward to the berth,
you like the bow to move to starboard. Which thruster
do you use to achieve this movement?

## Rudder and forces

• What movements makes a vessel after giving starboard
rudder

## • Leaning shortly over to starboard

• Turns to starboard
• Tranverse movement to port (kick)
• Leaning to port during turn
• Loss of speed

## • Explain with the book these movements of the ship

Manoeuvring data
• Turning circle difference deep and shallow
waters !

• Speed tests

## Turning circles – stopping distance

Know the expressions. Explain why diameter turning circle larger in shallow water. Explain speed
reduction. Why speed reduction less in shallow water? And so on

## Controlled stop with engine and low

frequency rudder cycling (only effective on deep
water)

stopped

## By using the Stopping on the Lift principle(reduce revolutions of the propeller

step by step) as well as speed reduction by the drag of the rudder and vessel.
The final astern manoeuver should be given to stop the vessel and to turn the
vessel into the original heading (depending left/right prop)

## Chapter 4 Standing and handing over

the Watch

The watch
• Standing the watch is taking care of navigation and act
when needed
• Warn the captain instantly upon any doubt as to safety
• The watches
0-4 middle watch
4-8 morning watch
8-12 forenoon watch
12-16 afternoon watch
16-20 evening watch
20-24 first watch

The watch
• Handing over the watch
• be in time to consider the oncoming navigation
• Handling over: al relevant information as course(s), speed, drift,
ships, lights, dangers, and so on
• Heading and course both given in figures 150 = one five zero
• What’s the difference between heading and course
• REPEAT ALL and what does it means
• Hard a starboard Starboard a bit Starboard a bit more
• Starboard 30 Ease to 20 Midships

• Twin propellers (two screws) improve
1. operating reliability and 2. maneuverability.
• With twin props the shafts mostly are at equal distance from the center
line. The further the shafts are away the easier the ship will turn

## • The propellers can be inturning or outturning . Fixed or variable.

• Most vessels are equipped with outward rotating fixed propellers, or
inward rotating variable propellers. WHY?
• The maneuverability is improved when the vessel is equipped with two
rudders and a bow thruster

19

## Outturning fixed propellers - one

rudder • Port propeller left handed
• Starboard propeller right handed
• Turn over starboard with port engine
• Two momentums are effecting the
propeller:
• One because of one propeller
reversing while the other one is still
in forward gear
• The other one due to wheeling
propeller effect.
• Both momentums together will
increase the turning.
• With slow speed the rudder to
starboard has none or little effect

20
25-10-2016

## Inturning fixed one rudder

• Port propeller right handed
• Starboard propeller left handed
• Turn over starboard with port
engine ahead and sb engine astern
• Two momentums are effecting the
propeller:
• One because of one propeller
reversing while the other one is still
in forward gear
• The other one due to wheeling
propeller effect but now
counteracting
• So both will oppose each other and
therefore making turning more
difficult or even impossible

## Mooring and unmooring twin screw

• Fixed inturning
• Fixed outturning
• Variable pitch inturning
• Variable pitch outturning
• With
• one or two rudders
• bowthruster or bow-and sternthruster
• bowsprit
• Non parallel propeller shafts
