Design and Optimization of the Voith Linear Jet
The VLJ combines the best properties of propellers with the best properties of waterjets. For this product, the design challenge is to maintain high efficiency across wide operating range while delaying the onset of cavitation.
“CAESES is a core component in the design department, and nowadays it drives all new product developments to ensure the very best performance.”
— David Bendl, Development Engineer at Voith
- Superior efficiency realized at low speeds while maintaing good high speed efficiency
- Reduced cavitation, results in low noice and vibrations
- Ideal propulsor for ships with mixed operating profile between low and high speeds like yachts, workboats, and patrol vessels
