The paper presents different approaches in simulation open water propeller performance by using CFD method, which are sliding mesh, moving reference frame and stationary reference frame approaches. The different in numerical setup, order of accuracy in simulation results and computational time between three methods are given. To confirm the accuracy of numerical results a well-known propeller of Japan Bulk Carrier ship model is selected for verification and validation process. At the end, the
