COMPARISON OF PROPELLER ANALYSIS METHODS AND EXPERIMENTAL DATA
Filipský J., Štorch V.
pages 192 - 195, full text

An analysis of a propeller of known geometry was carried out using three various methods: vortex theory, vortex theory with lifting line correction (VT+LL) and a 3D panel method. Analysis results were compared with experimental data measured in a wind tunnel that was built for the purpose of propeller testing. The comparison indicates that the VT+LL method offers the best propeller efficiency prediction of the presented methods, although the 3D panel method has been used in a simplified way and will be further improved. The ambition of the work presented is to develop and validate a simple and reliable tool for propeller optimization.
