Abstract
The document reports on the work performed at Canadair, under contract to DREA, for the further development of the CANAERO computer code to include propulsor modelling. The formulation, implementation and testing of the CANAERO actuator disk with swirl propulsor model is described, and the mathematical details of a theory of slipstream contraction used in the model is given. Results are given for the CANAERO code for a submarine hull+sail configuration with an aft mounted propeller, a simple wing immersed in a propeller slipstream, and for an axisymmetric shrouded propeller configuration. No convergence difficulties were encountered with any of these configurations. An updated user guide and input data description are included in the report, together with sample datasets.
