Novelty of invention consists in form of each propulsor of vertical lift: propulsor has cylindrical body closed with grates at the top and at the bottom; vertical shaft mounted inside body is used for securing upper and lower pressure wheels; lower wheel is lesser in diameter. Each pressure wheel is made in form of bush secured on vertical shaft and connected with rim by means of spokes. Secured on upper surface of rim are air intakes whose inlet openings are open in way of rotation of pressure wheel; rim body has vertical passages according to number of air intakes; each vertical passage is made in form of Laval nozzle. Radial blades of straightening apparatus are located below each pressure wheel.EFFECT: improved aerodynamic properties.21 dwg

FIELD: shipbuilding; breaking ice cover by resonance method with the use of hovercraft.SUBSTANCE: proposed method is performed by hovercraft running at resonance speed along edge of ice cover; in the course of motion of hovercraft, craft is so positioned relative to profile of flexural gravitational waves by changing its speed that ultrasonic radiator is located under wave crest; said radiator is mounted inside hovercraft hull and is extended under ice cover when required. Then, ultrasonic radiator is switched-on for raising temperature and hydrodynamic pressure under crest of flexural gravitational wave.EFFECT: enhanced efficiency of breaking ice cover.

FIELD: ice breaking technique; breaking ice cover by resonance method with the aid of hovercraft.SUBSTANCE: proposed method is performed with the aid of hovercraft running at resonance speed. Ice cover is additionally acted on by radio radiation at frequency of 109 to 1010 Hz by means of generator which is located on extensible rod on board the ship. Generator forms hydraulic impact under highest point of crest of flexural gravitational waves and amplitude of this wave is increased when hovercraft runs along edge of ice cover.EFFECT: enhanced efficiency of ice breaking.

FIELD: ice breaking technique; breaking ice cover by resonance method with the aid of hovercraft.SUBSTANCE: proposed method includes excitation of resonance flexural gravitational waves in ice and creation and change of aerodynamic lift force at frequency of resonance flexural gravitational waves. In the course of motion of ship, alternating aerodynamic lift force is created at frequency of resonance flexural gravitational waves by turning the horizontal plates to positive and negative angles of attack towards incoming flow of air. Plates are mounted on upper deck. Angles of attack are periodically changed at frequency of said waves.EFFECT: increased thickness of ice broken by this method.1 dwg
