New Propeller Concept

Postby mmnkl » Tue Sep 13, 2016 8:45 am

Hello everyone, since I saw a video explaining how ducting the propeller will increase the efficiency, I was wondering how could I modify the propeller design to improve the lift. So I opened up SolidWorks and I started to design an airfoil from scratch, and after a few simulations, the software said that the lift force generated by the propeller was significantly bigger than a conventional propeller. The virtual design is ready, (more or less) and the only thing to do is now print the propeller and make a real experiment to know how accurately the simulation was. I will put here the link to my design next to images from the simulations results.
