A Design Panel Method (DPM) is then applied to compute the pitch and camber at each section able to develop the required load distribution (spanwise and chordwise). The effect of the hub is included, as well as the alignment and contraction of the trailing wake are performed. Title “Optimisation and Design of Contra-Rotating Propellers”. The main theoretical and numerical aspects of a design method for optimum contrar-rotating (CR) propellers for fast marine crafts are presented. We propose a reformulated version of a well-known design theory for contra-rotating propellers, by taking advantage of a new fully numerical algorithm for the calculation of the mutually induced velocities and introducing new features such as Cited by: 3. A design optimization is performed with a single objective function using genetic algorithm to obtain a blade design with maximum efficiency for the counter rotating propeller configuration for a. the application of the method for the design of fast CR propellers and the relevance of using exact lifting surface corrections are finally drawn in the conclusions. 1. INTRODUCTION The demand for high performance propellers, related to lower fuel consumption at cruise condition and higher top speeds at given power, is recently stressing the.
1. Introduction. Contra-rotating propellers (CRPs) comprise two sets of coaxial propellers that rotate in opposite directions. As the aft propeller absorbs the rotational energy of the forward propeller wake, CRPs have a higher hydrodynamic efficiency than single propellers and, as the torque of forward and aft propellers cancel each other, CRPs can effectively reduce the rolling . The contra-rotating propeller (CRP) system is the representing example of such devices. Unfortunately, however, neither a design method nor a full-scale performance prediction procedure for the CRP system has been well established yet. Contra-rotating propellers have a very long history dating back to the the original patent was taken out by F.W. Lanchester at this time, the main advantages of a pair of contra-rotating propellers are the torque on a aircraft is effectively cancelled out it has been found that these propellers are between 6% and 16% more efficient than a. Advantages: * Torque and gyroscopic effects on the plane’s handling are eliminated. * Greater power capability for diameter-limited applications, as most are. Disadvantages: * Heavier, due to the complex gearbox. * Lower prop efficiency, due to th.
Contra Rotating Propellers (CRP) is a type of propulsion system which consists of two propellers on the same line of shaft, spaced at short axial distance apart and rotating in opposite directions.
