This paper presents the results of a cooperative study by JAXA, DLR, and ONERA on the optimal design of helicopter blades for high-speed forward flight. Optimizations and simulations are carried out by each agency with their own analysis codes using both blade element theory-based methods and computational fluid dynamics. These results are cross-compared and show common trends identified for optimum rotor blades obtained by each agency and the mechanism for improving forward flight performance are discussed. From the effective drag distributions, it is confirmed that, in order to improve forward flight performance, it is first important to reduce drag on the advancing side, and that a blade with a relatively small twist angle and planforms with a smaller chord length at the root and tip compared to the mid-span section is generally a suitable blade.
