Abstract: This paper investigates the modelling and hydro dynamic analysis of sub merged marine propellers. The model analysis is based on the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) using fluent software. The method of meshing and the effect of mesh size are studied in this paper. Moreover, different propeller models and methods are explained; and the best setting for obtaining the accurate result are presented. The performance curve of the propeller obtained by CFD are compared and verified with the analytical result. The pressure and velocity contours around the propeller also presented.
