Cavitation is the formation of vapour cavities in a liquid, small liquid-free zones ("bubbles" or "voids"), that are the consequence of forces acting upon the liquid.
Centrifugal pumps are a sub-class of dynamic axisymmetric work-absorbing turbomachinery.
The diesel engine (also known as a compression-ignition or CI engine), named after Rudolf Diesel, is an internal combustion engine in which ignition of the fuel which is injected into the combustion chamber is caused by the elevated temperature of the air in the cylinder due to mechanical compression (adiabatic compression).
The draft or draught of a ship's hull is the vertical distance between the waterline and the bottom of the hull (keel), with the thickness of the hull included; in the case of not being included the draft outline would be obtained.
A ducted propeller, also known as a Kort nozzle, is a marine propeller fitted with a non-rotating nozzle.
Dynamic pressure (sometimes called velocity pressure) is the increase in a moving fluid's pressure over its static value due to motion.
A ferry is a merchant vessel used to carry passengers, and sometimes vehicles and cargo as well, across a body of water.

HSS Discovery was a high-speed ferry owned by Albamar Shipping Company.
The hull is the watertight body of a ship or boat.
An inventor is a person who creates or discovers a new method, form, device or other useful means that becomes known as an invention.
Jet Ski is the brand name of a personal water craft (PWC) manufactured by Kawasaki, a Japanese company.
A jetboat is a boat propelled by a jet of water ejected from the back of the craft.
The Kitchen rudder is the familiar name for "Kitchen's Patent Reversing Rudders", a combination rudder and directional propulsion delivery system for relatively slow speed displacement boats which was invented in the early 20th century by John G. A. Kitchen of Lancashire, England.
The littoral combat ship (LCS) is a set of two classes of relatively small surface vessels designed for operations near shore by the United States Navy.
Marine propulsion is the mechanism or system used to generate thrust to move a ship or boat across water.
The Mark 48 and its improved Advanced Capability (ADCAP) variant are American heavyweight submarine-launched torpedoes.
The Mark 50 torpedo is a U.S. Navy advanced lightweight torpedo for use against fast, deep-diving submarines.
A navy or maritime force is the branch of a nation's armed forces principally designated for naval and amphibious warfare; namely, lake-borne, riverine, littoral, or ocean-borne combat operations and related functions.
New Zealand (Aotearoa) is a sovereign island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean.
An ocean (the sea of classical antiquity) is a body of saline water that composes much of a planet's hydrosphere.
A personal watercraft (PWC), also called water scooter, jetski, and comically a boatercycle, is a recreational watercraft that the rider sits or stands on, rather than inside of, as in a boat.
A pump is a device that moves fluids (liquids or gases), or sometimes slurries, by mechanical action.
The Royal Navy (RN) is the United Kingdom's naval warfare force.
The Russian Navy (r, lit. Military-Maritime Fleet of the Russian Federation) is the naval arm of the Russian Armed Forces.
The Seawolf class is a class of nuclear-powered fast attack submarines (SSN) in service with the United States Navy.
Secondo Campini (August 28, 1904 – February 7, 1980) was an Italian engineer and one of the pioneers of the jet engine.
Sonar (originally an acronym for SOund Navigation And Ranging) is a technique that uses sound propagation (usually underwater, as in submarine navigation) to navigate, communicate with or detect objects on or under the surface of the water, such as other vessels.
The Spearfish torpedo (formally Naval Staff Target 7525) is the heavy torpedo used by the submarines of the Royal Navy.
A stealth ship is a ship which employs stealth technology construction techniques in an effort to ensure that it is harder to detect by one or more of radar, visual, sonar, and infrared methods.
A submarine (or simply sub) is a watercraft capable of independent operation underwater.
The Super Dvora Mark III-class patrol boat is the latest generation of the venerable Dvora family of fast patrol boats or fast attack crafts (FPB/FAC).
The Swedish Royal Navy (Svenska marinen) is the naval branch of the Swedish Armed Forces.
Thrust vectoring, also thrust vector control or TVC, is the ability of an aircraft, rocket, or other vehicle to manipulate the direction of the thrust from its engine(s) or motor(s) in order to control the attitude or angular velocity of the vehicle.
A modern torpedo is a self-propelled weapon with an explosive warhead, launched above or below the water surface, propelled underwater towards a target, and designed to detonate either on contact with its target or in proximity to it.
A transmission is a machine in a power transmission system, which provides controlled application of the power.
The United States Navy (USN) is the naval warfare service branch of the United States Armed Forces and one of the seven uniformed services of the United States.
The Virginia-class, also known as the SSN-774 class, is a class of nuclear-powered fast attack submarines (hull classification symbol SSN) in service with the United States Navy. The Virginia-class attack submarine is the U.S. Navy’s newest undersea warfare platform and incorporates the latest in stealth, intelligence gathering and weapons systems technology. Attack submarines are designed to seek and destroy enemy submarines and surface ships as well as project power ashore with Tomahawk cruise missiles and Special Operation Forces, carry out Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions; support carrier battle group operations; and engage in naval mine warfare. Virginia-class submarines are designed for a broad spectrum of open-ocean and littoral (shallow coastal water) missions. They are replacing older s, many of which have already been decommissioned. The ''Seawolf''-class attack submarine was originally intended to succeed the Los Angeles-class, but production was canceled after only three submarines were produced due to budgeting restraints at the end of the Cold War, and the final submarine was manufactured in 1995. Virginia-class submarines will be acquired through 2043, and are expected to remain in service past 2060. Based on recent updates to the designs, some of the Virginia-class submarines are expected to still be in service in 2070.
