Basic Aerodynamic Rotor Theory
- Advertisement -
This section sets out the theory used to explain how a rotor system works. Because
a rotor acts as an airfoil, we will first
look at how it behaves in an airstream.
We will then consider which
aerodynamic forces play a role when rotors rotate through the air around a shaft. Finally, we will wrap the results up to arrive at the concept of the rotordisc.
