heal.abstract The aim of this paper is to show how an unsteady BEM time stepping algorithm can be used in predicting the unsteady performance of maneuvering propellers and biomimetic flows. The main innovation of the developed methodology is its capability to calculate the geometry of the free shear layers (vortex sheets), produced by the lifting bodies of the system, avoiding thus the use of any simplifying assumptions like that of a helicoidal or a generalized wake model. More specifically, after a brief presentation of the principal theoretical and numerical aspects of the developed methodology, we give a number of applications for the prediction of the developed unsteady forces and moments for a maneuvering propeller in selected operational regimes and a flapping foil system. en
