Validation of Interpolative Interfaces for Rotorcraft Applications

Cofer, A., M.S. Thesis, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, December 2013 The study uses computational methods to simulate fluid flow on the NASA ROBIN helicopter model and on a simplified rotor geometry previously tested at Mississippi State. The ROBIN model and the rotor are run using an unstructured grid. Results from the Tenasi flow solver are compared against both simulated and wind tunnel data. Tenasi is an unstructured, Reynolds
