The ratio between the distance an aircraft moves from one revolution of a propeller(s), under specified conditions, and the propeller's diameter. It is the ratio of the forward speed divided by the product of rotational speed and the diameter. All propeller performances are compared at the same advance ratio. See diameter ratio.

The variations of these coefficients are presented with respect to the freestream advance ratio, [mu], defined as the ratio of the freestream velocity to the rotor tip speed, in the form
These uncertainties were then implemented in the TSM in order to obtain the uncertainty percentages associated with thrust, power, and roll moment coefficients as well as freestream advance ratio namely [mathematical expression not reproducible].
As per energy consumption over advance ratio which is denoted by [[eta].sub.Advance](u,v), the above equation can be remodeled as,
As per Equation (11), energy consumption over advance ratio is highly reliable in lossy sensor networks.
17, 1903, the Flyer had an estimated forward speed of 31 mph during the steady flight portion of its path and the propellers were turning at 379 rpm, which yields an advance ratio of 0.85.
The performance coefficient results with respect to the advance ratio are shown in Figure 19.
The level of increase becomes higher as the speed increases (higher advance ratio).
Figure 16 shows the comparison of CROR and SRP thrust and power coefficient in regard to advance ratios. As shown in Figure 16, the SRP thrust coefficient and power coefficient are larger than that of the CROR front propeller but smaller than that of the CROR aft propeller in the same advance ratio; this is due to the recovery of the swirl flow behind the front propeller into axial momentum.
Thrust coefficients of different advance ratios are obtained via the rotated shaft balance.
These include comparisons of rotor thrust, propulsive force and power as a function of advance ratio. The rotor thrust (computed in OVERFLOW2) was nominally 2.5 percent higher than the measured values for all speeds.
Wind tunnel modeling becomes important at advance ratios greater than p = 0.37 and LRTA modeling becomes increasingly important as the advance ratio increases.
