The rotating blade of a propeller shares similar characteristics to a wing passing through the air A propeller blade generates thrust F through an aerodynamic lift force component, demands an engine torque Q to overcome aerodynamic drag, and will stall if the local resultant angle of attack of the blade exceeds Additional factors: trailing vortex generation, tip losses, compressibility

Actuator Disk Theory For evaluation of propeller performance, one can apply a simple analytical approach using the principle of linear momentum conservation, and treating the propeller as an actuator disk where there is a step increase in pressure

( V3 V0 ) A3V3 ( V3 V0 ) F m

Alternatively:

F A1 ( p 2 p1 )

Bernoullis eq. applied from upstream to front of disk:

1 1 2 2 p0 V0 p1 V1 2 2

1 1 2 p 2 V2 p3 V32 2 2

Noting po = p3 , and V2 = V1, via subtraction one gets:

A3V3 = A1V1

Substituting from earlier:

F A1 ( p 2 p1 ) A3V3 ( V3 V0 )

and

p 2 p1

A3 1 V3 ( V3 V0 ) ( V3 V0 )( V3 V0 ) A1 2

V3 V0 V1 2

V1 V0 w

V3 V0 2w

and so for thrust,

F A1V1 ( V3 V0 ) A1 ( V0 w )(V0 2w V0 ) 2 A1 ( V0 w )w

P 1 1 1 V32 m V02 A1 ( V0 w )[(V0 2w )2 V02 ] 2 A1 w( V0 w )2 m 2 2 2

or

P F ( V0 w )

Since power from a piston or turboprop engine is relatively constant at a given altitude, one can expect the thrust to drop as the airplane picks up airspeed, according to this correlation. If one wishes to find w as a function of F, from earlier:

( 2 A1 )w 2 ( 2 A1V0 )w F 0

giving

V0 1 2F 2 w V0 2 2 A1

Correction factor, less than 1, for ideal power estimate:

Variable-pitch propeller better able to approach the ideal power requirement, as compared to a fixed-pitch propeller, in accommodating different flight speeds and altitudes.

Exercise

To propel a light aircraft at an absolute velocity of 240 km/h against a head wind of 48 km/h a thrust of 10.3 kN is required. Assuming a theoretical efficiency of 90% and a constant air density of 1.2 kg/m3 determine the diameter of ideal propeller required and the power needed to drive it. Sketch the velocity and the pressure profile along the slipstream boundary.
