Propeller Design Consideration for Turbine Powered Aircraft 680227
This paper describes the influence of aircraft and installation characteristics on the design of propellers in the 500-1000 SHP class. These characteristics have a significant effect on propeller performance, weight, and stress levels.
Specifically, the effects of aircraft geometry and flight conditions on propeller blade selection and pitch change system design will be considered. Sample aircraft installations will be presented along with a brief description of propeller operation.
