Abstract

Constant pitch propeller whose blade angle is fixed with respect to hub is suitable for low speed airplane. The objectives of this thesis are to determine thrust, torque and the performance of the low subsonic airplane propeller. The thesis has been carried out by the two different approaches- Analytical and Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) simulation. The Analytical Method using “Propeller Blade Element Theory†is one of the most effective methodologies available for determining the thrust and torque produced by the propeller. On the other hand, the Computational Fluid Dynamic simulation has been used to simulate and capture the performance of the propeller. Through both methodologies, the propeller performance was analyzed and compared. The results obtained were tabulated and the corresponding graphs were plotted. Both methods suggest that the thrust and torque change with the change in relative velocity. Besides, there are several factors that contribute to the variations in results of the Analytical method and CFD Simulation.
