DUCTED PROPELLERS - A REVIEW AND DESCRIPTION OF CURRENT INVESTIGATION

The paper describes the past theoretical and experimental work on ducted propellers. Also included is a discussion of the limitations of these past investigations. Since the ducted propeller is used primarily for low speed applications ( i.e., deep sea submersibles, tugboats and VTOLs ) the theoretical and experimental development for low speed and static conditions is obviously needed. A description of the current and proposed theoretical and and experimental investigation for these conditions is presented. ( Author )
