The mean streamline method of propulsor blade section design has been adapted to the digital computer. Results agree well with cases previously calculated by hand. The computer solution is rapid and will allow the designer to better optimize his blade shapes. Blade rotation, pre-swirl and sections on conical surfaces are accounted for by the program. Digital output from the program can be applied directly to hardware fabrication procedures without the time consuming digitizing and smoothing previously required.
