Title:
DUCT DEVICE AND SHIP UTILIZING SAME
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2014/104167
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
This duct device is installed anterior to a propeller at the stern of a ship. The duct device is equipped with a duct body. The duct body has: a rear edge which is positioned on the posterior side of the ship, forms an arc around the rotary shaft of the propeller, and has a contour which falls within a range of 0.5R, wherein R represents the radius of the propeller, in a perpendicular direction to the rotary shaft; and a front edge which is positioned on the anterior side of the ship, forms an arc around the rotary shaft, and has a larger contour than the rear edge in a perpendicular direction to the rotary shaft. Thus, a decline in the propulsion efficiency of the propeller is prevented in the technology for installing the duct anterior to the propeller.
