 February 4, 2005, 05:52 Aircraft propeller simulation #1 white Guest   Posts: n/a Hello. I'm going to simulate a 3 and 4 bladed aircraft propeller encountered with side flow. Can anybody out there help me to get some idea to simulate this propeller? I've used MRF before, however I got negative lift result. For your information, Fluent 6.1 was used to simulate this propeller? M MOHSIN likes this.
