Abstract : In the report references are made to journal articles, papers, and technical reports where the results are reported. Major subject areas are: laminar boundary layers on rotating blades, unsteady boundary layers, turbulent boundary layers, numerical solution of Navier-Stokes equations for two-dimensional and three-dimensional applications, a new boyd-fitted coordinate system for numerical solution of Navier-Stokes equations, wake geometry of a hovering rotor, inflow and wake studies of a full-scale hovering rotor, the design of airfoils for low Reynolds numbering applications, rotary wing noise generation, and downwash and trailing vorticity behind high-kift wings.
