Abstract : The report presents a torsional vibration analysis of a ship's propeller shaft system driven by an electric motor. The propeller shaft is unusual long: 43 meters. The results of the analysis are evaluated on basis of the specifications of Lloyd's Register of Shipping. Further, a comparison has been made with similar results using a diesel direct propulsion system.
