This turbine is fictionary, since it's an invention for a school project. The boat using these side-mounted turbines is of 600', 300 tons and going at an average speed of 17.5 knots. Before I determine the size of this turbine, I need to know if there are formulas to calculate such things as: - How much energy would be produced by water turning the propellers in the turbine, for an extended period of time - How these turbines will affect the braking of the ship - How much thrust they could generate Just wanted to know if it was possible. Thanks
