We will consider the circumferential distribution of the body force field in the further research. The propeller/wake interaction is one of the main concerns in our group [1], [2]. Thank you for the suggestion of the iteration between the propeller for these application cases. But only a first step was undertaken in this paper to capture the flow characteristics of the wake with guide vane propeller. Similarly, we need to consider the iterations for the further work.
