Propeller Performance Chart

Propeller performance is shown on this window. Propeller efficiency is displayed in the view versus any of the measures shown on the selector below the view. For example, the user can observe the joint effect of the number of blades and propeller diameter on efficiency at a given airspeed. Other measures are shown to the right.


Airspeed is chosen on this window using the slider below the view. The choices for engine type and operating conditions are made on the Engine Performance window. Basic characteristics of any propeller can be entered below the view. Alternatively, propellers can be chosen from a series of built-in shapes tested in wind tunnels or defined from an arbitrary diameter and shape using the Activity Factor panel. The Activity Factor panel is accessed using a button at the lower right of this window.
