CFD method has been coupled with a time-marching free-wake model by usingfield velocity approach suggested by J. D. Baeder (Ref. 1). The coupled method hasbeen applied to rectangular and BERP-like blades and the calculated perfonnance dataare compared with the experimental results.For hovering analysis, the present method could yield sufficiently good resultswith reasonable computation time and is particularly suitable for the flow fieldanalysis with the complex shaped blade.
