THRUST PREDICTION PROGRAM FOR MARINE JET POWER
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Marine Jet Power, MJP wishes to investigate the possibility of transforming their current Thrust Prediction Program, TPP written in C++ source code into a more up to date tool for their sales staff. The old TPP, though an accurate and precise tool, is not documented and lacks commentaries in the source code. Therefore the beginning of this master thesis was about documenting and investigates what methods were used to calculate the performance of the water jet system.The next step was splitting the long C++ source code in to smaller functions, this was done using MatLab where several m-files were created with the different functions in. C++ syntax and structure differs from MatLab so the source code must be translated in to MatLab syntax. Once the new TPP was translated and the calculation results were identical with the old TPP a Graphical User Interface, GUI was created and presented to MJP. The current MatLab TPP is not finished, only two of four calculation modes have been translated and MJP wants modifications in the GUI. The additional work needed in order to have the sales tool MJP wishes is currently discussed.
