An experimental investigation has been made to determine the effects of shroud-lip radius of curvature, shroud length, and shroud diffuser angle on the static thrust characteristics of a small-scale shrouded propeller which simulated a propeller submerged in the wing of an airplane. Also included are the effects of distance from the exit of the shroud to the ground on the thrust available take-off.
