Main Question or Discussion Point

Hey I was wondering if anyone knew of a propeller design program, preferably written in Matlab, but I'd take anything.

I am familiar with XFoil, XFLR5, and XPlane, but I don't know of any good propeller design programs. I have read into MPVL, but I'm pretty sure that is just designed for water propellers, and I didn't get deep enough to see if I could somehow convert it to design propellers for airplanes.

What I would like is something like XFoil or XFLR5, but for propellers.

I would then like to optimize it for a specific Reynolds number or lift coefficient, but that's farther down the line. First I would just like to build a propeller, and then analyze its polars.

Let me know if you think of anything,

Nate
