The invention relates to shipbuilding and can be used in the construction of marine propellers, including vessel propulsion and steering columns (DRC).

Known screw propeller comprising a hub, on the outer surface of which is mounted the blades, and the propeller shaft connecting the propeller to the ship's engine (see V. P. Orekhov, B. C. Murugov "propellers controllable pitch", VINITI, Moscow, 1961, p. 53). The disadvantage of the screw propeller is the impossibility of its use in vessel propulsion and steering systems.

Closest to the claimed invention by the technical essence and the achieved result is a vessel propulsion and steering column that contains the column base, shaft, drive shaft, located inside the shaft, the steering column, the angular gear, a streamlined nacelle, mounted on the shaft and right angle gearbox, propeller and propeller shaft disposed within the housing of the nacelle adjacent to the propeller hub and sending her torque (see E. P. Lebedev, etc. "Means of active management of ships", ed. "Shipbuilding", Leningrad, 1969, p. 177, 185). The disadvantage of this DRC is the lack of reliability and the difficulty of replacement of the propeller. The fact that the blades of the propeller in the process of his work is exposed to different� unplanned factors: floating logs in the water, ice etc All they put extra force on the blades of the propeller and through them on the shaft of the screw, which is connected with a drive mechanism. Particularly acute problem when the shaft is connected to bevel gear reducer. Additional force leads to rapid wear of gears and decrease the operating life of the vessel propulsion and steering column. In addition, breakage of the blades of the propeller or loss of the screw causes the need for its replacement, which could only be exercised when setting the vessel to the dock, which is very expensive and time consuming.

The purpose of the present invention is to enhance reliability of operation of vessel propulsion and steering column and simplify replacement of the propeller.

This object is achieved in that in the known vessel propulsion and steering column that contains the column base, shaft, drive shaft, located inside the shaft, the steering column, the angular gear, a streamlined nacelle, mounted on the shaft and right angle gearbox, propeller and propeller shaft disposed within the housing of the nacelle adjacent to the propeller hub and sending her torque, it hub mounted through bearings on the housing of the nacelle end and provided with a transmitting element, bonded as with the hub and propeller shaft. End PE�edushi element can be formed as gear couplings, and between it and the end of the shaft can accommodate a damping device, wherein the outer perimeter of the hub is a continuation of the outer perimeter of the housing of the nacelle. In the proposed design of the DRC are virtually eliminated axial load on the propeller shaft. When an unplanned force action on the blades of the propeller, or on the hub, or at the transmitting end the last element is shifted along the propeller shaft, not passing it axial load. When the propeller shaft is already not impact further on the drive mechanism and the bearings in which it rotates. End, the transmitting element may be formed in various constructive versions, however, the most optimal is a toothed coupling, which transmits only the torque from the propeller shaft to the hub. When the axial displacement of the coupling she slips on the gear set, not rendering on the propeller shaft. Introduction to the design of the proposed propulsion damping device between the end of the propeller shaft and the transmitting end element absorbs vibration from propeller to propeller shaft and further to the drive mechanism, which also reduces their wear. To minimize the hydraulic resistance of the nacelle when the vessel is important to eliminate all projecting parts and recesses on the outer surface. Therefore, the outer perimeter of the hub is� a continuation of the outer perimeter of the housing of the nacelle. The proposed construction of screw propeller and allows to solve one more important problem: the relatively easy replacement of the propeller. To replace it only enough to dismantle end-transmitting element, which connects with the shaft slidably or with the clearance, and then remove the hub with blades. All can be done in terms of navigation of the vessel without installing it to the dock.

The proposed design vessel propulsion and steering column are shown in Fig.1 and 2, where Fig.1 shows a General view of the DRC, and Fig.2 - the host of the hub of the propeller on a streamlined gondola. In the figures the following expressions are used:

1 - column base;

2 - baller;

3 - drive shaft;

4 - steering column;

5 - angular reducer;

6 - streamlined nacelle;

7 - the platter;

8 - blade propeller;

9 - the hub of the propeller;

10 - place the sealing vane;

11 - the bearings of the hub;

12 - end transmitting element;

13 - shaft propeller;

14 - damping device;

15 - the case of the nacelle;

16 - the outer perimeter of the hub;

17 - perimeter enclosure of the nacelle;

18 - lubricating channels.

Vessel propulsion and steering column (Fig. 1) from the base of the stock 1 and 2, in which is located a vertical drive shaft 3 connected to the angular gear 5. Last�th is located inside a streamlined nacelle 6, where is the propeller shaft 13 connected with the propeller 7. The steering column 4 provides the rotation range of 360 degrees and locks the shaft 2 by means of the support disk 7.

The propeller (Fig. 2) includes a hub 9, on the outer surface of which is fixed to the blade 8 in the field of seal 10. The hub 9 are mounted through bearings 11 on the housing of the nacelle 15. Lubrication of the bearings 11 is made through the lubricating channels 18. The connection of the hub 9 with the shaft 13 of the propeller is carried out through the end, the transmitting element 12. In this case, it is made in the form of a gear coupling. Between the end of the shaft 13 of the propeller and shaft, the transmitting element 12 is located damping device 14. The hub 9 is mounted on the housing 15 of the nacelle so that the outer perimeter 16 of the hub was a continuation of the outer rim 17 of the hull of the gondola.

The proposed device operates as follows. Torque from a drive motor (not shown in the figures) is transmitted to the drive shaft 3, the angular gear 5 and the shaft 13 of the propeller. Further, the torque is transmitted to the transmitting end element 12 and then to the hub 9, which leads to the rotation of the blades 8 of the propeller and the creation of the stop. In off-design mode effects on the propeller and shaft, the transmitting element 12 additional efforts it is not vozdeistvuya shaft 13 of the propeller, thanks to the moving end of the transmitting element 12 along the shaft 13 via the gear set inside this element. Thus, the shaft 13 does not operate off-design axial load, which allows to increase the reliability of operation of the screw propeller or, ceteris paribus, to reduce the diameter of the shaft and to reduce the weight of the screw propeller. It should be noted that without off-design loads of the proposed technical solution eliminates the weight load on the propeller shaft. In this case, acts on the shaft but the torque and weight of the propeller does not affect the shaft and the housing of the nacelle, which provides a favorable mode of operation of the propeller shaft 13.

The placement of the hub on the housing of the nacelle allows you to provide a relatively simple and Assembly-disassembly of the propeller with the purpose of its replacement without installing the vessel in dock, which reduces the cost of operation of vessel propulsion and steering column and vessel in General.
