Van der Velden ART TM Asymmetric Rudder Technology Van der Velden ART™ is especially suit­ able for vessels with a velocity above 24 knots and can be applied to all the Van der Velden rudders. Due to the rotation of the slipstream, conventional rudders constantly operate in an apparent angle of attack. In addition to increasing drag, this also results in cavitation on the rudder blade. Our Asymmetric Rudder Technology (ART™) has been especially developed to improve propeller flow. A special layout modifies the profile above and below the centreline of the propeller in such a way that the effects...
