Propeller Blade Section Profile Calculation

Wageningen B-screw series is perhaps the most extensive and widely used propeller series
The extent of the series in terms of a blade number versus blade area ratio matrix is shown
in table 6.4 from which it may be seen that the series numbers some 20 blade area-blade
number configurations. The geometry of the series is shown in Table 6.5

a = Distance between leading edge and generator line at r
b = distance between leading edge and location of maximum thickness
t= maximum blade secton thickness at radius r
c = chord length of the blade section at radius r
So tmax =
