The propulsion system of a marine vessel is the main contributor to noise radiation. It is therefore of interest to reduce the noise transmitted from the propeller into the ocean and hence the vibration that is generated by the propeller itself. The motivation for reducing noise and vibration includes minimising component wear, increasing stealth capacity of military vessels and passenger comfort. This thesis aims to analyse the unsteady force generated by the propeller, the force transmission paths, improving and develop methods to measure the force transmission through the thrust bearing in real-time.
