  • A simple vortex model of a rotor with infinite number of blades and constant circulation is presented in this chapter. The model consists of a root vortex, a right semi-infinite vortex cylinder of tangential and longitudinal vorticity, and a bound vortex disk (actuator disk) of radial vorticity. This model was briefly presented in Sect. 5.2.3 The model forms the basis for the results derived in several chapters of this book, namely: Chaps. 18, 21, 25 and 26. Most of the analytical derivations… CONTINUE READING
