The cyclocopter module currently available in MBDyn models the inflow of a cycloidal rotor. It is however limited to 2D aerodynamics models; moreover, the implementation of the double multiple streamtube model is not yet stable. Calculate the inflow velocity vectors over the cyclocopter rotor (at each azimuth location) using the Double Multiple Stream Tube Method (Combination of Blade element theory and Momentum theory). Which will basically consider/capture the effect of induced velocity generated by upper half blades on the lower half blades.
