In the design process of modern advanced propeller or prop fan, tip induced loss has been the foremost cause of power cost and its natural of difficulty in quantization also causes the deviation of power on the design point. Based on the former research and combined BEM method with the Tip-Loss Factor, this paper analyzed two different cases which had determined geometries. Then, we got the characteristics of the two on the tip induced loss and made some quantitative estimates on induced power loss. The results showed that the propeller tip induced loss characteristics was not only related to the actual geometric distribution, but also had the correlation with the specific operational conditions, especially advanced ratio and pitch angle, which had the most obvious impact on this loss characteristics. Finally, this study illustrates that this manner adopted can be used for the design, experiment and theoretical analysis of actual propeller under certain conditions.
