AbstractThis report describes the experiments carried out here at IOT in March of 2007 on the NRC-IOT Podded Propulsor model, which is a scaled model of the MUN-NSERC with a scale factor of 1:1.35. It also compares these experiments with two other cases. These cases consist of the tests conducted at MUN on the MUN-NRC-NSERC model in January of 2005 and a simulation of these tests done with PROPELLA. With these new tests, the data suggests that the definition of the performance envelop of podded propulsors should be increased. Further testing plans include the building of a model vessel where model self-propulsion tests will be conducted.
