Abstract:

This report gives to the user of the HP41-CV handheld programmable calculator or the IBM 3033 computer a blade element method for calculating the total power required in forward, straight and level high-speed flight for an isolated rotor. The computer programs consist of a main program which calculates the necessary dynamic parameters of the main rotor and several subroutines which calculate power required as well as maximum forward velocity, stall onset velocity, and velocity for best endurance.
