Assessment of a Propeller Model Embedded on a Panel Method Code for

Abstract

An inviscid actuator disk model is embedded in a three-dimensional low-order panel method code for inviscid incompressible flow in order to study the propeller effects on an arbitrary body. The actuator disk model predicts the time–averaged induced velocities in the slipstream of a propeller with an arbitrary radial distribution of load. The model is… (More)
