Speed Feasibility Monuverability 2construction Requirements weight size Thermo effic The longer the fuel is in the chamber of combustion the more likely that all the fuel is consumed and greater efficiency of the engine Starting at the bottom and moving up is the direction of efficiency Diesel Steam Nuc Gas turbine Propeller Resistance (the pressure pushing back) Has 4 components Skin Friction based on the under water (growth on hull) water of the hull larger the ship larger the resistance Wave Making bulbous how to reduce the wave making resistance
