Abstract: Recently, Fiber Reinforced Composite is used for making a propeller blade to develop its performance by increasing the payload and underwater speed of the vehicle. As a consequence of its feathery weight & high strength, numerous scholars/scientist substituted the conventional metallic material with composite material for crafting the propeller. In the contemporaneous work, predictions of pressure circulation around the profile of a propeller blade as a result of hydrostatic pressure difference are existing. Static structural stress investigation was executed for a single combination i.e. carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) & for hybrid condensation (a combination of two composite materials) i.e. CFRP & Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastic (GFRP). ANSYS APDL software is used to conclude von Mises pressure developed in the propeller blade. The result has been given away that it is more beneficial to use the hybrid blended material than the composite one. The weight value of propeller blade is found to be lower for the hybrid complexes, proposing the intrinsic worth of the contemporaneous work.
