Abstract: Propeller Boss Cap Fins (PBCF) is an energy saving device which is used widely to improve propulsion efficiency and save energy (fuel consumption). This paper presents the characteristics of propeller with PBCF and the comparison of the propeller with and without PBCF in terms of hydrodynamics by Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) method. The Potsdam propeller model is calculated and validated. Then using this validated CFD setup to calculate the Potsdam propeller with PBCF. The solver using in this research is Star CCM+.
