The S-76 Rotor Test Case


Hover Conditions


Calculations should be performed for a tip Mach number of 0.65 assuming standard day sea level conditions. To allow for direct comparison with other's results and to determine how well the investigator’s code captures the general trends it is recommended that the investigators cover the range of thrust conditions, nominally from CT/s = 0.02 to 0.10. Comparisons will also focus on the CT/s = 0.09 condition.
