Abstract
A fast method of aerodynamic computation (FMAC) is put forward for compound gyroplane. It combines advantages of the blade element momentum theory and the engineering estimation method. To fast obtain aerodynamic characteristics of the compound gyroplane, the FMAC simplifies the interface between rotor and wing, and uses the estimation method to analyze wing and the blade element momentum theory integration method for rotor. Based on the FMAC, aerodynamic characteristics of a certain compound gyroplane are researched, and compares with the sliding mesh CFD method. The comparison confirmed the effectiveness and rapidness of this method. It is shown that the FMAC can be used for rapid aerodynamic analysis and design optimization of compound gyroplane.
