The motivation of this work is to reduce the overall required computational resources of the aerodynamic optimization process of helicopter rotor blades. Therefore an approach already applied to fixed wing aircraft is now ported to the helicopter rotor blade optimization. It is a surrogate based optimization process including variable-fidelity methods. After setting up the framework to accomplish this task, a theoretical and practical investigation of various aerodynamic models ranging from… CONTINUE READING
