A contrivance for propelling a steam vessel, usually consisting of a screw placed in the stern under water, and made to revolve by an engine; a propeller wheel.
A steamboat thus propelled; a screw steamer.
the device with two or (usually) three blades connected to a shaft and turned by the engine, thereby generating thrust from rotation in the water; current unlimited hydroplanes employ a surface-piercing propeller; also called "prop," wheel," or "screw."
a device that consists of a central hub with radiating blades that is used to pull or lift a vehicle (as a ship or a plane)
the thing at the front of the airplane. It spins round very fast when the motor is running. Props have been known to eat the fingers of careless rc pilots who hand start their motor without the use of a chicken stick.
a set of thin angled blades attached to a central hub. When the hub spins, the angled blades push air backwards which forces the aircraft forward
Rotating wheel that turns and powers a vessel forward or backwards
The bladed device, powered by the engine, that rotates in the water to develop thrust.
An assembly of radially disposed blades with an airfoil shape that when rotated in air produce thrust. more...... Search for propeller books on Amazon.co.uk
The spinning thing that makes an airplane move forward. Often incorrectly used (by Otherpower.com also!) to describe a wind turbine Rotor.
a mechanical device having radiating blades which is mounted on a revolving, power-driven shaft for the purpose of propelling a boat; also called a screw or wheel.
Rotating device that turns and powers a vessel forward or backward
Rotating screw-like device that provides thrust to push the boat through the water. Or for aircraft, thrust through the air.
a mechanical device that rotates to push against air or water
a critical part of your boats drive train
a device which causes a boat to move, consisting of two or more blades which turn round at high speed
a device which provides thrust for propulsion of a vehicle such as an airplane , ship , or submarine though a fluid such as water or air , by rotating two or more twisted blades about a central shaft, in a manner analogous to rotati Read More
a device which transmits power by converting it into thrust for propulsion of a vehicle
a device with a central hub and radiating blades placed so that each forms part of a spiral surface
a rotating airfoil, and is subject to induced drag, stalls, and other aerodynamic principles that apply to any airfoil
a rotating blade located on the front of the airplane
a series of blades on a hub that is mounted on an engine-driven shaft (or wind)
a shaped structure or airfoil that provides lift when air is forced over its leading edge
a turning blade on the front of an airplane
a type of airfoil (similar to a wing) that turns and accelerates air
a very efficient method of propulsion on water, which gave the Hogs the speed advantage, and they had less drag in the water as the landing craft was a catamaran design
airfoil that generates thrust
the device that converts the power created by the engine into forward thrust for the airplane
Many styles exist for paramotors ranging from 2 to 4 blades. These depend on the engine RPMs, blade lengths etc. There are no absolute answers to which is best. We like the composite blades. The wood blades are quite pretty though
a hub with three or more blades projected from it and secured to the aft end of the propeller shaft by key; when the shaft is rotated by engine, the blades cut the water developing a thrust that propels the ship it is designated right-handed when the propeller turns clockwise when viewed from aft, and left-handed when turning anti-clockwise the tip of the blade is the point furthest from the hub while the root is connected to the hub face of the blade is the after surface and the working surface of the blades, opposite is the back of the bldae leading edge is the edge of the blade that cuts the water first when moving ahead; opposite is the following edge
An airscrew that pushes air backwards as it rotates, thus pulling the aeroplane forwards.
A rotating device, with two or more blades, that acts as a screw in propelling a vessel.
The spinning thing that makes an airplane move forward. Often incorrectly used to describe a wind turbine Rotor. See also: Blade, Hub, Rotor
A blade that propels or acts as an airscrew turning by the oncoming wind. Also known as Prop. "slang term for the rotor"
A device that rotates about a central axis and in doing so, generates a propulsive force as it reacts on the surrounding air.
A rotating multi-blade device that propels a boat through the water.
A device on an aircraft, consisting typically of two or more blades twisted to describe a helical path as they rotate with the hub in which they are mounted, and serving to propel the aircraft by the backward thrust of air. The amount of thrust can be controlled by changing the speed of the propellers.
A device that consists of blades (shaped like airfoils) that spin around a central hub, like a fan. An engine causes the blades to turn. When the blades turn, they create thrust by biting into the air and forcing it to move back. The amount of thrust can be controlled by changing the speed of the propellers.
Airscrew fitted to the front of an engine. The pitch is the theoretical distance that the propeller would move forward in one revolution.
A metal thing that looks like a fan and is attached to your motor. Propellers typically do not have the same number of blades they came with. The propeller is a dual-purpose item. It both propels your boat through the water and catches stray dock and rigging lines before they can harm wildlife.
Turns and powers a boat forward or backwards
twisted airfoil or turning blade that is powered by the engine and provides thrust
The engine-driven rotating blades that create the thrust that pushes an aircraft forward.
The whirling device on the plane which turns engine/motor power into thrust. May be carved from wood, or molded from reinforced plastic or nylon.
A twisted airfoil that rotates about its center of mass to provide thrust. A propeller is usually limited to four blades; with more it is called a fan.
An airfoil which the engine turns to provide the thrust, pulling the airplane through the air.
Apparatus consisting of two or more twisted blades which are mounted on a hub and which rotate with that hub to move fluid axially to propel the object to which it is attached.
An object with two or more twisted blades, designed to propel a vessel through the water when spun rapidly by the boat's engine.
