Abstract

A fundamental aerodynamic analysis technique for a single straight fixed wing has been expounded upon and turned into a modern technique that can analyze multiple wings of more realistic shapes common on aircraft. This modern technique is extended further to apply towards propellers. A method to overcome propeller analysis problems at low airspeeds is presented. This method is compared to more traditional propeller analysis techniques.
