Cartesian grid was used in open water performance prediction, cavitation performance prediction and flow field characteristics of a propeller to research the applicability of the Cartesian grid in the numerical simulations of marine propellers. The comparisons of calculated results with the previous research and experimental results verify the accuracy of calculations with the grid on the prediction of thrust and torque coefficient and the simulation of cavitation distribution, wake velocity distribution and the vortex structure trajectory. Meanwhile the propulsive performances of Cartesian grid are better than other types of grid with the similar number of nodes. And the turning point of crash performance under cavitation condition and the phenomenon of vortex merging with neighboring vortex structure are excellent agreement with experiments and references.
