Description/Abstract

A set of simple, testable hypotheses for the behaviour of the rotor flow in axial flight is derived from a fusion of experimental, numerical and theoretical ideas. Although it is unlikely that all of the results described in this paper will stand up in the face of new information as it becomes available, the series of conundrums, paradoxes (and, simply, questions to be answered) that has been generated by this approach has proved invaluable in focusing research and helping to guide our progress in understanding the complexities of the rotor's aerodynamics - particularly within the vortex ring state.
