A wind-tunnel investigation of the aerodynamic characteristics of a full-scale sweptback propeller and two related straight propellers
Description: Report presenting an investigation of an NACA 10-(1.7)(062)-057-27 two-blade swept propeller was conducted int he 16-foot high-speed tunnel over a range of blade-angle settings. Two related straight propellers were also tested over the same operating range as the swept propeller. Results regarding envelope efficiency, effect of compressibility on maximum efficiency, effect of sweep on power coefficient, constant-power propeller operation, and effect of sweep on propeller-blade loading are provided.
