In order to study the applicability of different turbulence models in the prediction of propeller hydrodynamic performance, computational fluid dynamics software CFX was used to simulate the thrust coefficient, torque coefficient and efficiency of VP1304 propeller under specific viscous flow field conditions by using  -k models,  -k models, SST models and RSM models respectively. The prediction results from the four turbulence models are compared with the experimental data of controlled pitch
