Hi, this may seem stupid but I just have a simple question regarding Torque Measurements.
The basic setup for this Propeller Blade is:
Local Rotating Region about Y-axis
Rotation of -500 rad/s (counter-clockwise)
Ambient air conditions (Determining Static Thrust)
SG Torque: applied to all surfaces of all blades
I suppose I have two questions:
1. Does the measured torque mean the level of torque required from a motor in order to turn the propeller at given -500 rad/s?
2. Does the negative symbol (SG Torque (Y) -10.655) simply indicated direction of torque (CCW), not an actual negative torque value?

Thank you anyone for your consideration and help,
