Fuel Saving Potentials Via Measuring Propeller Thrust and Hull Resistance

This paper presents the possibilities offered by the full scale measurement of propeller thrust (and torque), to identify fuel saving potentials and emission reductions. Via full scale measurements of propeller thrust and torque, in relation to other parameters like ship speed, the change in propeller efficiency and the hull resistance can separately be determined over time. This for instance due to propeller or hull fouling, propeller damages and hull coatings.
