    The flowfield around a helicopter's spinning rotor, whether in forward flight or hover, is difficult to model due to the presence of unsteady flow and strong vorticity. Unlike a fixed-wing aircraft, which leaves its deposited wake behind it, a helicopter flies completely within its own strong vortex wake system. In hover, the strong tip vortices coil beneath the rotor and significantly alter the r... View full abstract»

    Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is an ever-increasing component of the naval design and analysis process. Most current high-fidelity CFD methods used by the US Navy require body-fitted volume grids, which are time-consuming and depend on seasoned engineers with significant grid generation experience. Automated grid generation using a strand gridding approach is a relatively new concept that cou... View full abstract»
