The vortex lattice method successfully applied in the past to helicopter rotors is now applied to marine propellers. Two cases are presented : advancing coefficient 7 with uniform and non-uniform upstream velocity behind a vortex generator. The results presented here concern the evolution of the thrust coefficient with the azimuth angle, the spanwise distribution of the thrust and the wake.
