Propeller Deformation Studies

The objective of this workpackage is to further develop QVT and IPCT for propeller deformation studies carried out in the laboratory and in research flight tests on a small aircraft. The result should be a method for (unsteady) propeller or rotor pitch and propeller or rotor deformation measurements based on non-intrusive high speed imaging techniques. Furthermore it is intended to verify the possibility for evaluating installed propeller performance on a deformation basis.
