Accelerating Marine Propeller Development in Early Design Stages Using Machine Learning

This paper presents a machine learning approach to accelerate the design of marine propellers. For open-water propeller characteristics, neural nets are trained to predict both integral quantities of open-water performance curves and local field values of velocities and pressures on two-dimensional planes for Wageningen B-Series propellers. The average difference between the predicted and CFD-obtained values remained below 1.5% for integrated quantities (thrust, torque, efficiency). The quasi-instantaneous response of a trained neural net may accelerate propeller design significantly.
