ABSTRACT: This research deal with the propeller which is the main and most important part for propelling in submarine , ships etc. .The blades of propeller modeled and simulated  by using solidwork  2015 software and analysis them by using Ansys 16.1. The blades contained bump on the their surfaces . Two materials used for propeller Aluminum and Titanium to study the effect of materials difference on the deformation and stress when the propeller subjected to water flow at specific speed . The results showed that the Titanium is better than Aluminum to withstand the deformation.

Keywords : Ship Propeller; Bump; Aluminum; Titanium; Ansys.
