TURBULENT WAKE BEHIND SLENDER PROPELLER-DRIVEN BODIES AT ANGLE OF ATTACK

Several previously unstudied effects on the turbulent wake of propeller-driven bodies are examined. The first is the effect of body pitch angle on the wake properties. The second is the addition of an appendage such as a "sail" to an axisymmetric body. The third is the effect of replacing a single propeller by an equivalent set of side-by-side, counter-rotating propellers.
