dc.description.abstract The kinetic temperature of a section of a propeller blade has been calculated for a blade with high thermal conductivity, and also for a blade which is non-conducting. Calculations have been made for clear air, and for conditions of icing to find the extent to which kinetic heating is effective against ice. On a non-conducting blade the temperature is lowest at the position, on the cambered face, where the velocity of the air is greatest. At this position there is practically no protection from kinetic heating. In .the case of a blade which is a good conductor, the average temperature is calculated by balancing the flow of heat by convection to and from the blade. The average temperature is substantially above the minimum temperature on a non-conducting blade. The average temperature has been calculated for a range both of conditions of icing and of operation. en_US
