If the suction on the low-pressure side of the eco drive propeller blade dips below ambient pressure - atmospheric plus hydrostatic head - then a vacuum cavity forms. (To be strictly correct, there is water vapor in the cavity, and the pressure is not a true vacuum,eco drive but equal to the vapor pressure of the water.) When these vacuum cavities collapse, water impacts on the blade surface with a local pressure singularity - that is, a point with theoretically infinite velocityeco drive and pressure. The effecteco drive can approximate that of hitting the blade with a hammer on each revolution. Cavitationeco drive is a major source of propeller damage, vibration, noise,eco drive and loss of performance. And although high- speed propellers are often designed to operate in a fully- cavitating (supercavitating) mode, problems associatedeco drive with cavitation are frequently a limiting factor in propeller design and selection. The surface propeller effectively eliminates cavitation by replacing it with ventilation. Witheco drive each stroke, the propeller blade brings a bubble of air into what wouldeco drive otherwise be the vacuum cavity region. The water ram effect that occurs when a vacuum cavity collapses is suppressed, because the air entrained in the cavity compresses as the cavity shrinks in size. Although the flow over a superventilating propeller blade bears a superficial resemblance toeco drive that over aeco drive supercavitating blade, most of the vibration, surface erosion, and underwater noise are absent. In theory there is a slight performance penalty for allowing surface air into the low-pressure cavities. Instead ofeco drive near-zero pressure on the forward side of the blades, now there iseco drive 14.7 psi pushing backwards. But in practice, this effect is not significant considering the total thrust pressures involved in high-speed propellers. Note that cavitation can also be associated with sudden loss of thrust and high propellereco drive slip, often caused by a sharp maneuver or resistance increase. Thiseco drive can still occur with surface propellers, although the propeller is ventilating rather than cavitating and the result is not aseco drive damaging. Appendageeco drive Drag: Exposed shafts, struts, and propeller hubs all contribute to parasitic drag. Inclined the exposed shafts not only produces form and frictional drag, buteco drive there is also induced drag associated with the magnus-effect lift caused by their rotation. There is a surprising amount of power loss resulting from the friction of the shaft rotating in the water flow. In fact, for conventional installations a net performance increase can often be realized by enclosingeco drive submerged shaftseco drive in non- rotating shrouds, despite the increase in diameter. Surface propellers virtuallyeco drive eliminate drag from all of these sources, as the only surfaces to contact the water are the propeller blades and a skeg or rudder. Variable Geometry: When a surface propeller is used in conjunction with an articulatedeco drive drive system, the vessel operator then has the ability to adjust propellereco drive submergence underway. This has roughly the same effect as varying the diameter ofeco drive a fully submerged propeller,eco drive and allows for considerable tolerance in selecting propellers - or it allows one propeller to match a range of vessel operating conditions.
