This project uses the ANSYS CFX modeling application to simulate the rotational movement of a boat propeller in Transient form.

A propeller converts torque, or the force that causes anything to revolve, into thrust. Water moves behind and downhill behind the blades of a rotating propeller, creating a thrust of water from the blades.

Each blade has a specific curved shape that, when it turns, helps to move the water below it and away from it, acting as a foil to do so before pushing the water out from behind.

The 3D geometry of the solution is designed in SpaceClaim software. The propeller is placed at middle of the domain and closer to the inlet. The waterflow enters the domain with the velocity of 20m/s while the propeller rotates with the rotational velocity of 1500 rad/sec.

The simulation is carried out for 0.08sec.

Then the geometry is connected to the ANSYS Meshing software. The elements with a high quality are produced in tetrahedral type.

Furthermore, 5 layers of inflation is set around the circle which results in elements equal to 1,746,106 and 2,291,835 for stationary and rotating zones, respectively.

Methodology: Boat Propeller Transient Solution

The simulation runs considering time (Transient state). Gravitational impacts are also disregarded.

The turbulence model is Shear Stress Transport (k-ԑ SST).

The domain motion of the propeller zone is set to rotating. Also, the Frame Change/Mixing Model of the interfaces of rotationary and stationary zones are set to Transient Rotor Stator.

The Advection Scheme, Transient Scheme and Turbulence Numeric are set to upwind, second order backward order and First order, respectively.


At the end of the solution process, two-dimensional contours, vectors and streamlines related to velocity, pressure, Eddy viscosity and the Turbulence Kinetic Energy are obtained.

As shown in the figures, the pressure amount on the propeller is visible.

The periodic behavior of waterflow over time is displayed in animations exported from CFD-Post software.

Additionally, if you give closer attention, you can see the vortexes behind the propeller via the vectors and streamlines.

    I’ve learned an incredible amount from the Boat Propeller Transient Solution, ANSYS CFX training. The methodology used was thoroughly comprehensive, the instructions clear, and it deepened my understanding of how propellers generate thrust. The attention to details, like using a high-quality tetrahedral mesh and accounting for rotational zones, really showcases the caliber of truth behind modeling with ANSYS products. It’s evident that every aspect, from geometry preparation in SpaceClaim to setting up the transient solver conditions, was geared towards capturing nuanced flows created by the propeller.

    The project results mention a ‘periodic behavior of waterflow over time.’ Can you elaborate on what kind of periodic behavior was observed and what may have caused this pattern?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The periodic behavior observed in the boat propeller simulation refers to a recurring pattern in the water flow caused by the rotating propeller blades. Each blade’s passage through the water generates vortices and pressure variations, which repeat with every revolution of the propeller, thus making the pattern periodic. This periodic behavior is captured in the Transient simulation and is largely due to the propeller’s rotational motion and the interactions between the moving blades and the water.

    The simulation appears fascinating. How do the second-order backward and first-order schemes complement each other here for accuracy and stability?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      In this simulation, the second-order backward transient scheme is used to enhance temporal accuracy by considering information from the past two time levels, which provides a more accurate representation of temporal changes. The first-order spatial scheme offers good stability, especially necessary in highly non-linear and transient flow scenarios like the one with the boat propeller. This approach aims to deliver a balanced simulation where time accuracy and spatial stability are optimized.

    Absolutely phenomenal learning material! The step-by-step elucidation of the transient solution for a boat propeller using ANSYS CFX is exceptional. The explanation of the curvature and movement of the propeller blades was detailed, and the integration between the geometry in SpaceClaim and mesh generation in ANSYS Meshing software demonstrated a seamless workflow. The breakdown of setting up the simulation, including the intricacies of boundary conditions such as the rotatory zone and the interface settings like the Transient Rotor-Stator model, is truly instructive for interpreting the dynamic behavior of propellers. It’s impressive to see the presentation of results in various forms, including contours and streamlines, to understand the resultant pressure and water flow. The tutorial certainly provided an in-depth understanding of rotational fluid dynamics and would be an invaluable resource for anyone looking to execute similar CFD tasks.

    The Boat Propeller Transient Solution project sounds fascinating! I’m curious about the animation—it seems like it would provide excellent visual insight into the flow behavior. Can you tell me more about how the animation is created and what it helps to visualize?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The animation mentioned in the Boat Propeller Transient Solution project is created using results from the final simulation data. It’s produced in the CFD-Post software, a post-processing tool that accompanies ANSYS software suite. The animation illustrates the periodic behavior of water flow and propeller interaction over time by showing movement such as velocity fields, pressure variations, and vortex formation. This dynamic visualization helps in understanding the performance and efficiency of the propeller as well as the flow characteristics like vortices, which are critical to the propulsion of a boat.
