Default model for an aircraft propeller
Tim Lammering
Posts: n/a
Hi, we are trying to simulate the flow over an aircraft with a running propeller. We are not quite sure how to model the propeller disc. We had the idea to model it as a cylinder with a pressure outlet as the prop's intake area and some sort of inlet bc as the prop's outlet which would give us the possibility to establish a radial momentum. Does anyone has any good suggestions?

Thanks for your help, Tim
