Marine Propulsors and Current Turbines: State of the Art and Current Challenges

Description

Over the last decade, significant advances have been made in the design, analysis, and optimizations of marine propulsors and current turbines. We invite authors to submit original research and review articles that present state of the art numerical and experimental studies, as well as innovative design and optimization methodologies related to marine propulsors and rotors. We are particularly interested in articles that focus on advancing the understanding of the dynamic response of marine propulsors and rotors, their interactions with other components and surrounding flow, as well as current challenges. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Advanced propulsor/turbine concepts (e.g., self-adaptive propellers and current turbines, smart rotors, rim drives, podded propulsors, multistage propulsors, waterjets, etc.)
  • Cavitation, erosion, and noise of marine propulsors and current turbines
  • Rotor-structure interactions (propulsor-rudder interactions, propulsor-hull interactions, turbine rotor and support structure interactions, etc.)
  • Rotor-flow interactions (propulsor performance in open water and behind conditions, in seaways, crashback and maneuvering operations, rotor dynamics and interaction with spatially and/or temporally varying flows, ventilation, rotor-ice interactions, rotor-sea interactions, dynamic modeling and design of large-scale offshore wind and tidal energy farms, etc.)
  • Rotating green propulsion mechanisms and devices
  • Hybrid and all-electric marine propulsors
  • Renewable energy rotating devices/mechanisms (e.g., tidal/marine turbines, offshore wind turbines, energy scavengers, etc.)
  • Advanced systems-based design and optimization methodologies
