Abstract
Specific features of application of Pressure Sensitive Paint (PSP) method for propeller blades investigation are discussed. Pressure fields on both sides of the blade of twin-blade propeller model were measured by PSP. The model was investigated at rotation rates up to 5300 rpm at blades pitch angles 15°, 35° and 45° without external airflow. Propeller thrust, torque and blade pitch moment were calculated. Thrust and torque were also measured by balance. Good agreement between PSP and balance results can confirm the reliability of PSP measurements on propellers.
