This paper contains a detailed description of a 2,000-horsepower propeller dynamometer used to make wind-tunnel tests of a two-blade NACA 10-(3)(08)-03 propeller for a range of blade angles from 20 degrees to 55 degrees at airspeeds up to 500 miles per hour. The results of these tests and comparisons with results obtained from a theoretical analysis and from previous tests made in other wind tunnels are presented.
