    Most of those that you want were published in the 1967 version of Principles of Naval Architecture from the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers. You might contact SNAME to see if they have any older copies.

    The 5.105 is not there, but the others are. PNA also includes charts for 2, 3, 6, and 7 bladed propellers.

    The 1988 version of PNA, vol. 2, uses a different kind of Bp-Delta chart that was developed in 1975. They cover only 4-bladed props.

    That's correct, that is how the charts are presented in PNA'67. In PNA'88, the baseline is not Bp, but rather a Bp function so that equates a square-root of Bp to Kq and J propeller curves.

    Here's another paper I found in my library (see attached file). Admittedly I didn't use it yet since I'm more familiar with my KT, KQ = f(J) charts.

    The paper deals with several additional design parameters which might be similar to those mentioned by Eric Sponberg.

    Maybe this is of some help...

    Bp -delta charts

    Hi there, if you have a look at a book called Propeller data and their applications by the NSMB it has all the Bp-delta diagrams in the back.

    If anyone can help out on Ka series propeller data, namely the 5.75 one, I'd be most grateful!
