Abstract

ONE of the most important issues facing regional turboprop airframe manufacturers today is reducing cabin noise. Range and cruise speed are also major considerations. Propeller optimization, in terms of the propeller diameter, blade design, and the number of blades, is a key factor in all three issues. Many airframe manufacturers are finding the solution to their problems in composite propellers.
