Voith Schneider Propeller

I wrote this a while ago but it’s relevant here.

maybe four years ago or so in college I joined a club where we were building a human powered submarine. We wanted a nonstandard propeller design and so we came across the Voith Schneider and decided to run with it. It turned out Voith Turbo USA was super close to my college so we contacted them and they immediately got super interested in the project. We started working with their engineers both in the US and their main engineers in Germany where they were using their super computers and test tanks to test design iterations for us. We ended up getting some pretty cool design ideas in CAD going and were just about to build a test model of the VSP which we were going to ship to Germany for water tank testing but our professor from the school suddenly passed away and everything kind of fell apart since we couldn’t work without school support.

While I dont have much from the team anymore, I did manage to scrounge up a conceptual drawing of our submarine with the propeller.
