Abstract:

The report gives the measured values of propeller induced velocities determined from a survey conducted in the 24-inch Water Tunnel. The axial and tangential components of the velocity were obtained at various radial and axial positions forward and aft of the propeller. Comparisons with theoretically computed values show, in general, good agreement. Author
