Abstract : The report presents the results of a research program to obtain a consistent set of blade strain and air-load data for a blade of a stoppable rotor configuration arbitrarily oriented with respect to the free stream. The research program obtained data for such a blade configuration over a wide range of shaft tilt angles, blade pitch angles, and azimuth angles.
