The bewilderment of the flow field around the main rotor blade ceaselessly remains unrequited in tangible flight environments. Appalling calamities repeatedly befall owing to these unforeseen and equivocal : Ziad bin Abdul Awal, Mohd Shariff bin Ammoo. Thesis. chusetts Institute of Technology. Dept. of Aeronautics and by: A design parametric study for the span-wise wavy trailing edge is conducted, and followed by the isolated rotor simulation of the SNLmeter blade. In the parametric study, the best aerodynamic span-wise wavy trailing edge design increases maximum % of lift/drag ratio, and reduces the tonal noise by dB(SPL), compared to the flatback.

1 Introduction The accurate numerical simulation of the helicopter rotor flow in hover or forward flight leads to an accurate calculation of rotor blade.

Helicopter rotor blades require at a minimium some mechanism to control the pitch of the blade (AKA feathering) and most also allow the blade to flap up and downward, or to teeter in pairs. These mechanisms are mostly required to be duplicated for each blade, so adding cost, weight, and increasing the possibility of failure.
