Title: Numerical Study on the Influence of Wake Contraction on the Computational Accuracy and Rapidity of a Model of a Rotor in Hover
Keywords: model rotor; hover; induced velocity; vortex ring; vortex cy
Abstract: In the present article, the authors are performing a comparison study between two vortex models for the numerical computation of the static thrust of a model helicopter rotor in hover. The aim of this study is to access the rapidity and accuracy of the vortex models, comprised of a series of vortex rings and a single semi-infinite vortex cylinder. The first model has a cylindrical arrangement of the vortex elements, while the second model has a contracting arrangement of its vortex elements. Studies are performed for the optimal positioning and spacing of the vortex elements , in order to provide both rapid computation and good agreement with the experimental data,obtained from a wind tunnel test of the model rotor. The results of the study show a slight increase in the required computational time for the case of the contracting wake, while offering a significantly better accuracy than the cylindrical wake. Another interesting result from the numerical study is that in the rotor.
