Calculation of aerodynamic forces on a propeller in pitch or yawAn analysis was made to determine the applicability of existing propeller theory and the theory of oscillating airfoils to the problem of determining the magnitude of the forces on propellers in pitch or yaw. Strip calculations using compressible airfoil characteristics were first made as though steady-state conditions existed successively at several blade positions of the propeller blades during one revolution. A theory of oscillating airfoils in pulsating incompressible potential flow was then considered from which it was possible to determine factors which would modify the steady-state forces.
