SUMMARY The study of rotor–fuselage interactional aerodynamics is central to the design and performance analysis of helicopters. However, regardless of its significance, rotor–fuselage aerodynamics has so far been addressed by very few authors. This is mainly due to the difficulties associated with both experimental and computational techniques when such complex configurations, rich in flow physics, are considered. In view of the above, the objective of this study is to develop computational tools suitable for rotor–fuselage engineering analysis based on computational fluid dynamics (CFD). To account for the relative motion between the fuselage and the rotor bla...
