PROPELLER MANUFACTURING: PROBLEMS IN DESIGN--PRODUCTION INTEGRATION AND QUALITY CONTROL

The service record of propellers is less than desirable and when propeller-related problems become intolerable, the diagnosis as well as the cures may be time consuming and expensive. A careful study of the existing design and manufacturing processes indicates that action is needed to improve; the design process, design data bases, quality control requirements, manufacturing processes, blade surface measurements, and design implementation. This paper describes these problems in detail and considers them in context of total propeller technology.
