A detailed experimental study of propeller-wing interaction was presented. Five-hole probe was used to obtain velocity distribution at a survey plane behind trailing edge of a high-aspect-ratio wing with tractor propeller. Significant deformation of propeller slipstream was observed compared to a free propeller. The deformation was more prominent at low advance ratio, where transition flight of vertical take-off / landing aircraft were concerned. Comparison with two recent reduced-order slipstream models revealed large discrepancies between theoretical predictions and wake survey results. An analytical model of slipstream transverse deformation was proposed at the end that might be incorporated into improve such models.
