Numerical results from the NOTS lifting-surface propeller design programs are presented. Comparisons of computer solutions with exact analytical solutions are given and indicate that the accuracy of the computer solutions is more than adequate for engineering calculations. Design calculations for a typical wakeadapted propeller are shown. These calculations point out the importance of correctly representing the radial variation of x tan beta for a wake-adapted propeller. A discussion is also given of the work presently under way, which will include the effect of the hub boundary condition on lifting- surface propeller design.
