In the report references are made to journal articles, papers, and technical reports where the results are reported. Major subject areas are laminar boundary layers on rotating blades, unsteady boundary layers, turbulent boundary layers, numerical solution of Navier-Stokes equations for two-dimensional and three-dimensional applications, a new boyd-fitted coordinate system for numerical solution of Navier-Stokes equations, wake geometry of a hovering rotor, inflow and wake studies of a full-scale hovering rotor, the design of airfoils for low Reynolds numbering applications, rotary wing noise generation, and downwash and trailing vorticity behind high-kift wings.
