Abstract:

The report analyzes the influence of propeller slip-stream on the aerodynamic characteristics of a wing while the propeller operates in place and under conditions of external incoming flow is determined by the impulse theory of an airfoil of finite span. The results are compared to both those obtained by the Possio experiment and those obtained by a specially conducted experiment with high relative loads on the propeller-disk area. The results of this work can be used when calculating the influence of flow from a propeller at any subsonic flight speeds under draft design conditions. Author
