This paper describes several new approaches to the solution of the hydrodynamic design/analysis problem for a wide class of propulsors including ducted, podded, waterjets (and even conventional open propellers). This work builds on the concept of the coupled axisymmetric j/ow/lifting surface representation of the total flow field initially developed in the Marine Hydrodynamics Laboratory at MIT starting in the early 1990's.
