Abstract : Tables are presented for computing the instantaneous velocities induced at the blade axes of lifting rotors having 1, 2, 3, or 4 blades operating in forward flight. An example of the application of the results used to calculate blade air load distributions is given. Comparison is made with experimental flight test data. (Author)
