Rotary-Wing Aerodynamics (Two Volumes Bound as One) by W. Z. Stepniewski,C. N. Keys.


Rotary-Wing Aerodynamics

Clear, concise text covers aerodynamic phenomena of the rotor and offers guidelines for helicopter performance evaluation. Originally prepared for NASA. Prefaces. New Indexes. 10 black-and-white photos. 537 figures.

From a strictly aerodynamic point of view, rotary wing aircraft may be defined as configurations which, at least during takeoff and landing maneuvers, derive their lifting force directly from an open air screw, or air screws. These maneuvers may be performed either vertically or with ground run.
