Determine propeller speed according to certain flow

Hello there,


This is my first time on this forum.

I see some interesting discussions so I thought let's give it a try..


I was wondering how to determine the rotations / speed of a propeller according to a certain flow.

In fact it's the other way around when you compare it to a fan study


I'm working for a customer who is selling Flow meters.

For a new model I need to analyse this and optimize a part (red color) that is causing the flow to swirl before it "hits " the propeller.

A good swirl results in a well postioned flow and high efficiency of the flow meter.


Can somebody help.




Kind Regards
