AbstractThe analysis of podded propulsion devices generates a large volume of data. The collection of static data covering the entire operational range for a pod is impractical due to time and resource constraints. To improve the efficiency of podded propulsor performance analysis a method has been developed to utilize dynamic test data to achieve an equivalent measure of performance. It is impractical to process this model test data by hand or with conventional spreadsheet based tools. As such, software based tools have been developed in the MATLAB environment to aid the analyst in their task of producing an acceptable performance surface as a function of azimuthing angle and advance coefficient. This report describes one such tool and discusses the current implementation, revisions on previous methods, and the limitations of the software. The graphical user interface for the software is described as well as common troubleshooting methods. These methods proved successful in the analysis of the model test data from the model icebreaker Araon and its podded propulsion system.
