I’ve been studying for a pilots exam for sometime now and I’m stuck with one question I cannot find an answer to.
The question goes something like this:
You are berthing a 15,000SHP vessel with a left handed CPP propulsion system, what is the transverse thrust in tons of the propellor.
I know now how to calculate transverse thrust from thrusters, and how to calculate windage in tons but cannot find an answer to this question anywhere.
Any help would be appreciated.
