A modular capability to compute dynamic aeroelastic characteristics of rotor blades using the Euler/Navier– Stokes flow equations and finite element structural equations is presented. The approach is based on a time-accurate analysis procedure that is suitable for nonlinear fluid–structure interaction problems. Fluids and structural solvers are time-accurately coupled in the C++ environment. Unsteady aerodynamic and aeroelastic results are validated with experimental data for nonrotating and… CONTINUE READING
