    Aeromarine Research's "Secrets of Propeller Design" - History & Design of Propellers

    February, 2006

    AeroMarine Research® has just introduced the new 3rd edition “Secrets of Propeller Design” book. This 2006 publication written by well-known performance powerboating author Jim Russell, chronicles an in-depth discussion on Propeller design, Pitch, Rake, Skew, Venting, Cupping,Propeller Types, Fundamentals of Cavitation, Ventilation, Blowout, Slip,Nosecones, Labbing, Gearcase design, Surface Drives, and Speed Calculation formula.

    The book includes "History & Design of Propellers" and presents a detailed accounting of how the first "screw" applications were invented, and how they led to early ship propulsion. Outlining "How a Propeller Works", parts and functions of a properly designed propeller, including material selection and "advanced propping" techniques, cupping, gearcase design and nosecone application is outlined. The book also includes Speed prediction formulae and propeller selection methods.

    This is a "must have" book for serious boaters, designers and enthusiasts that have "a need to know".

    AeroMarine Research® also publishes the popular "Secrets of Tunnel Boat Design©" book in over 45 countries, (now in its 12th printing), and distributes “Tunnel Boat Design” software for tunnel and vee-hull performance design; and “Propworks2” software for propeller selection and speed prediction.
