The Axial Momentum Theory (AMT), which relies on the uniformly loaded actuator-disk model without wake rotation, is still considered a touchstone in the theoretical aerodynamics of propellers. However, to simplify the model, the flow is generally supposed to be one-dimensional. The errors introduced by this assumption are evaluated by comparing the results of the AMT with those of a nonlinear method modelling the free wake as the superposition of ring vortices distributed along the wake boundary. The comparison shows that, for a highly loaded propeller, the flow is not one-dimensional and significant errors exist in the axial velocity at the disk, especially near the tip. View this paper.
