How about measuring actual values of u, v, w at the tip of the blade etc? You can then get a vector in 3D space. From the trigonometry and orientation of your blade coordinate system with this vector, you can calculate the angle. If you are trying to find on the angle of incidence on the edge, you may want to take average values of u,v, w at that and then figure out the vector. Not an elegant way but should give you an idea.
