Glass, Brandon AE5363-001 02/16/2017 Intro to Rotorcraft Using the rotor geometry and operating conditions as in problem #2 , calculate the induced velocity distribution of the rotor(Aerodynamics of the Helicopter by Gessow and Myer p. 68): Geometry: Rotor diameter = 35 feet, 4 blades, blade chord = 10.4 inches (constant), neglect root- cutout, assume “ideal” twist Operating Conditions: Sea level standard, VTIP = 756 ft/sec, a 2 Part I: Using the integral blade-element model of the rotor, calculate and plot the variation of induced velocity over the blade radius of the specified rotor for a thrust of 5,000 lb.
