In aeronautics, a propeller , also called an airscrew ,  converts rotary motion from an engine or other power source into a swirling slipstream which pushes the propeller forwards or backwards. It comprises a rotating power-driven hub, to which are attached several radial airfoil -section blades such that the whole assembly rotates about a longitudinal axis. The blade pitch may be fixed, manually variable to a few set positions, or of the automatically variable "constant-speed" type.
Feathering capability can be integrated optionally, reverse capability can be integrated for the use on airships, only. Several STC's are available. The single piece hub is made from forged or solid aerospace aluminum alloy.
You may already know about the advantages of constant speed propellers over fixed-pitch propellers. But have you ever wondered how a constant speed propeller works? A constant speed propeller is a variable pitch propeller that adjusts the pitch of the propeller blades automatically to maintain a certain RPM. Unlike fixed-pitch propellers, which only operate at optimal efficiency during one stage of flight, constant speed propellers provide peak performance during every phase of flight. Too much pitch in a propeller creates drag and limits power, while too little pitch forces the aircraft engine to run faster to reach the desired speed. Nearly all high-performance propeller-driven aircraft have constant speed propellers, which help protect their more powerful engines from excess wear.

Our reversible propellers for propeller turbines are hydraulically controlled constant speed propellers with our standard reverse systems installed:. These reverse systems are using the standard engine interface for the reverse actuation and the propeller control. They can be built with any number of blades like our conventional hydraulic constant speed propeller and can optionally be equipped with electric or alcohol de-ice boots.

Synthesis of Subsonic Airplane Design pp Cite as. In this chapter it will be assumed that the total thrust power to be supplied by the engines is approximately known. The various considerations which govern the choice of the number and type of engines are discussed. A short survey is given of propeller coefficients, diagrams and methods for controlling the propeller blade angle.
В этот момент рядом резко притормозил мини-автобус. Из него выпрыгнули двое мужчин, оба молодые, в военной форме. Они приближались к Беккеру с неумолимостью хорошо отлаженных механизмов.
