Abstract:

This paper demonstrates the current and future potential of finite potential of finite-difference methods for solving real rotor problems now rely largely on empiricism. The demonstration consists of a simple means of combining existing finite-difference, integral, and comprehensive loads codes to predict real transonic rotor flows. These computations are performed for hover and high-advance-ratio flight. Comparisons are made with experimental pressure data. Additional keywords Helicopters Equations of motion. Author
