dc.description.abstract It is known in the Aerospace industry that minimizing induced drag is one of the main  goals  to  reduce  fuel  consumption.  Nowadays,  new  concepts  are  being  investigated with the most advanced technology to check their viability. One of them is the wing performance due to its interaction with a propeller in a tractor configuration.  Effects  of  wing-­‐propeller  interaction  have  been  researched  since  the 1940s and 50𝑠��[!!!] with the purpose of analyzing how the aerodynamic performance  is  affected.  However,  most  of  the  literature  is  related  with  high  Reynolds numbers. Due to the limited information related to low Reynolds numbers, Gavin K. Ananda[!] from the Department of Aerospace Engineering at University  of  Illinois  at  Urbana–Champaign  decided  to  increase  the  understanding of the wing-­‐propeller interaction for low Reynolds numbers. To reach this goal, they analyzed the flow behavior on a wing for Reynolds numbers between  50,000  to  80,000  by  varying  different  parameters  such  as  propeller  advance ratio and location. This project aims to verify if the conclusions reached on  Ananda’s  work  can  be  extrapolated  to  higher  Reynolds  numbers  between  125,000 to 175,000. During testing, different parameters have been modified. These  are  chordwise  Reynolds  numbers,  propeller  advance  ratio  and  propeller  location. Generally, this last parameter is intended to determine the most efficient position of the propeller. To accomplish this goal, the project has been divided into two parts, the fabrication of the setup and the data acquisition. The project has lasted one academic year taking each of the aforementioned parts for one semester. es_ES
