Abstract

This report should be used as a reference guide when using the finite element method to approximate the static and dynamic behavior of flexible, rotating blades. Important parameters such as twist, sweep, camber, co-planar shell elements, centrifugal loads and inertia properties are studied. Comparisons are made between NASTRAN elements through published benchmark tests. The main purpose of this report is to summarize blade modeling strategies and to document capabilities and limitations (for flexible, rotating blades) of various NASTRAN elements.
