July 1948


Sound measurements for static conditions in the tip Mach number range 0.37 to 0.89 are presented for three different dual-rotating-propeller configurations and one combination of two single-rotating propellers operating side by side in the same plane of rotation. The results obtained are compared with a theoretical analysis of the problem and excellent agreement is found.
