The amount of research and publication on low Reynolds number propellers has increased recently, especially because of the high number of UAVs produced during the past years. The use of CFD on propellers has been focused primarily on commercial propellers, propfans, and general aviation propellers. The aim of this work is to use a CFD code designed mainly for large scale (i.e. high Reynolds number) propellers to compute the performance characteristics of a low Reynolds number propeller and then compare those results with another software product that has been used more for low Reynolds number propellers.
