Didnt think there was that many SHP in the world.
Biggest one so far is 108,00 SHP so how bigs this ship gonna be?
Gi normous jobby here.
And all on one shaft?
Or a DE version?
Where you gonna build this?
Its all off the clock in terms of reality.
Well, Merlyn, that's how you go beyond your imagination ... that's real new inventions ...
It will have this power for several reasons. Namely, in the figure you can see that the new engine with the same displacement as the 109,000 shp has much smaller dimensions and weight .. its weight is about 70 tons, which is almost 20 times less than this engine produced ..
And as a result of this, many times smaller weight, its masses of inertia are also many times smaller (second power). And since they are smaller, its rotational speed may be higher, well, these 4 times, they were somewhere up to 400 rpm, and if this is the case, the resulting power will be 109,000 X 4 = 436,000 horse power.
when we take into account that there is no 15% loss, due to the lack of a croshead we will get the 500,000 SHP .....
The ship will be the same, only it will go ... twice as fast to the port ...
Everything on the shaft itself, only 4 times faster, i.e. 400 rpm.
The engine yen has dimensions of 2 x 2 meters, so in a larger garage I can build it smoothly and on a ship connect it with the grippy connecting rod already on the drive shaft.
I don't know if you noticed that we lack the traditional Engine Block here.
And everything works like the best Swiss clock ..

Of course, you need to add 100,000 more horsepower from the heat of cooling and exhaust thanks to the Peltier Modules ..

Twice as fast eh?
Up on the plane big time here.
Don't forget the spray rails calculations here together with the cavitations equations.
Five blader or four?
Equipoise?
Left or Right handed?
Azipod?
PS
Can't imagine the size of you garage here.

well, I was worried about it, but I have a solution. Go to a DIY store and buy a measuring tape with two scales and then you can easily convert mm to inches .. :idea:
