ost of the flow phenomena important to modern technology involve turbulence. Propellers generally operate in the very complex flow field that may be highly turbulent and spatially non-uniform. Propeller skew is the single most effective design parameter which has significant influence on reducing propeller induced vibration. Up to date applications of propeller skew does not has a specified criteria for any turbulent model. This paper deals with the model which explains the effect of propeller skewness on hydrodynamic performance related to study of turbulent model via mathematical and numerical modeling. The simulation work is carried out using ANSYS-FLUENT software.
