Vertical Paddle Propeller Wheel

This model shows the paddle propeller wheel mechanism which is designed such that the paddles are always kept upright to give the most propulsion effectiveness. This mechanism is essentially four coupled four bar mechanisms. The two wheels are eccentric to each other and the rotating action of the two causes the paddles to always be held in a vertical position with their surfaces always meeting the water at right angles to their travel.
