it seems that flunt can simulate the flowfield around a helicopter(V22?),is there anyone do some research on helicopter? recently i rewrote a cfd code to compute the rotor flowfield,and the results agree well with Caradonna-Tung hover case. the problem is i don't know can it works well in forward flight. someone tell me to test it using ROBIN(Rotor Body INteraction) case,but i don't know how can i get it.

Hello David,

I do not work on the helicopter flow, but I saw some people using the "mixing plane model" in fluent to simulate flow aroung helicopter rotor.

Good luck

Thanks Abel,I will it. I also saw someone using sliding mesh,maybe there are some difference between them.
