University essay from KTH/Matematik (Inst.)

Author: Mario Heene; [2012]

Keywords: ;

Abstract: An aerodynamic propeller model, which can contribute to the prediction of structural loads experienced by aircraft in different flight maneuvers is presented.The model is based on Blade Element Momentum theory and is able to predict the unsymmetrical and frequency-dependent forces and moments induced by the propeller on the airplane structure at steady and unsteady inflow-conditions.In order to validate the model, a comparison with experimental results was performed and it can be seen that the model is in agreement with the experimental data providing that the aerodynamic data used for the calculations has good accuracy.
