HydroComp is holding its 2012 Propeller Workshop, a one-day intensive professional development session on marine propeller design and analysis, on Dec. 4 in New Orleans.

HydroComp said the workshop is for anyone involved in the design, construction, selection, operation or repair of propellers, particularly propeller builders and distributors, naval architects and shipbuilders, ship operators, and engine and transmission companies.

The workshop will have four principal topic groups that follow common stages for the sizing and design of a marine propeller — principles of marine propulsion, initial propeller sizing, detail propeller design and propeller CAD.

Afterward there will be a short presentation on “Marine Energy Audits — Navigating the World of Maritime Energy Efficiency Mandates.”
