Ships and marine technology -- Propulsion plants for ships
This part of ISO 3715 gives terms and definitions applicable exclusively to continuously variable and hydraulic operated controllable-pitch propeller units. It does not cover controllable-pitch propeller units for which only a few specified pitch settings apply. General vocabulary for the geometry of screw propellers is given in ISO 3715-1 and is also valid for controllablepitch propellers.

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies (ISO
member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO technical
committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has
the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in
liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the International ElectrotechnicalCommission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.
International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 3.
Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting.
Publication as an International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.
Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this part of ISO 3715 may be the subject of patent
rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.
International Standard ISO 3715-2 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 8, Ships and marine technology,Subcommittee SC 3, Piping and machinery.
ISO 3715 consists of the following parts, under the general title Ships and marine technology — Propulsion plantsfor ships:
� Part 1: Vocabulary for geometry of propellers
� Part 2: Vocabulary for controllable-pitch propeller plants
