Abstract : The report presents a torsional vibration analysis of a ship's propeller shaft system driven by two diesel engines. The propeller shaft is unusual long: 74 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 an electric propulsion system.
