Contribution to the mutual interference of wing and propeller

Wieselsberger, C.

The change of induced wing drag due to the field of flow of the propeller was analyzed quantitatively. The field of flow of the propeller is represented by a uniform distribution of sinks over the propeller disk area, whose strength is determined by the increase in speed in the slipstream. The superposition of this sink flow on the basic flow reproduces the actual field of flow outside of the slipstream with close approximation.
