Abstract:

Flow measurements were made behind a rotor using a 5-hole probe. Results were obtained for nine 9 basic flow configurations produced by varying upstream conditions. In these experiments the boundary layer thickness is the same order of magnitude as the rotor radius. All tests were conducted in the 48-inch diameter water tunnel at a nominal velocity of 15 fps.
