PROPELLERS, fans and axial compressors are all airscrews, the only difference being in the use to which they are put. Propeller theory and practice has been put on a firm basis by men like Glauert and the parameters used are now well established. The question therefore arises of whether or not it is advisable to hand over the parameters and results of propeller theory to the theory and practice of axial compressors.
