An Investigation of the Effect of the WADC 30,000-Horsepower Whirl Rig Upon the Static Characteristics of a Propeller
Description: "Tests have been made at the Langley Aeronautical Laboratory on a 6000-horsepower propeller dynamometer installed at a ground test facility to determine the effect of a half-scale model of the Wright Aeronautical Development Center 30,000-horsepower whirl rig upon the aerodynamic characteristics of a three-blade NACA 10-(3)(062)-045 propeller. The model of the whirl rig was mounted in front of the 6000-horsepower propeller dynamometer. Static propeller tests were made for 0deg, 5deg, 10deg, 15deg, and 20deg blade angles over a range of rotational speeds from 600 to 2200 rpm in 100-rpm increments" (p. 1).
