Abstract : Among the purely aeronautical applications, near-horizontal axis as well as horizontal axis devices are considered. The former cover the radial-lift propeller or 'self-propelling' wing; the latter cover Magnus effect and related systems; cyclogiro systems and horizontal-axis propeller systems with cyclic pitch. A limited investigation of non-aeronautical applications of HARWAS is also made, which covers wing-rotor type windmills, cyclogiro windmill turbines, Magnus effect ship… Expand
