Abstract:

An experimental and theoretical investigation of the effects of chordwise velocity variations on the time-dependent thrust generated by a propeller operating in a spatially varying velocity field is described. It is shown that the effects of chordwise velocity variations can become substantial as the steady thrust on the propeller is increased.
