Full text not available from this repository.


A simple analytical model to account for fuselage-induced velocities at rotor blade elements and at rotor wake nodes is described. The method is applied to three different fuselages. Results obtained with a comprehensive rotor code show the fuselage effect on rotor trim controls, comparing the isolated rotor with inclusion of the fuselage for the same trim. This is compared to a simple analytical estimate of the fuselage effect using blade element/momentum theory. It is found that in forward flight the lateral control is mainly affected by fuselage effects. Rotor thrust can be increased or reduced by the presence of the fuselage, depending on its angle of attack, and the fuselage influence generally increases with flight speed.
