Abstract:

Model propeller blade pressure distributions were measured using a novel technique. A single pressure gage was installed at a radial position to measure pressures at numerous chordwise locations through pressure taps and connecting channels. The technique resulted in accurate, detailed pressure distributions along two radial positions using two pressure gages. The major advantage of this technique is the ability to make measurements in the thin parts of the blade with high potential accuracy, and no disruption to the measuring surface, except for the orifice hole. The relatively along test time required to collect the data is the disadvantage. Keywords Marine Propeller, Propeller Research Pressure Distribution, Model Experiments.
