Development and Production of Measuring Instruments

Propeller Open Test System

Propeller Open Test SystemThis is developed by the laboratory to investigate the propeller open characteristics and to develop new type of propellers. Any sizes of propellers can be designed and manufactured in conformity with actual requirements.

P.M.M. (Planar Motion Mechanism)

@@ length 1,076mm
height 1.050mm
Swaying Amplitude
Yawing Amplitude
It is necessary to understand the ship's maneuverability for the safe and economical operating of ships.
Ship model is fixed to the P.M.M. Ship models are swayed yawed and fluid dynamic forces which act on the model are measured. Based on the test data, maneuverability of actual ship is estimated.


Development and
Research on the New Stage

We hope to be useful for you with hydraulic engineering
