The accurate prediction of the velocity field in the wake of a ship is a challenge of crucial importance since it affects the optimal design of the propeller rotating in a non-uniform velocity field. This non-uniformity causes temporal variations of the propeller thrust and torque and, consequently, possible vibrations and fatigue of the propulsive system.
