The far-field boundary is stretched up to 5R (blade radius), centered at the rotor hub.
Blade pitch was set to zero-degree collective at 75% blade radius. The performance of each configuration was predicted at the design operating conditions, and with no base motion.
Where is the air density [kg/m3], r is the blade radius of wind turbine, V is the wind speed.

In the optimization process, airfoils are taken from the aerodynamic database; design is optimized to give the best power output for given number of blades, blade radius, wind speed and rotational speed.
TAB-Stay features a 38-mm wide blade with a 20-mm blade radius, which allows up to 40-mm depth tissue retraction.
The granulation end-point calculator can calculate net impeller power for various wet mass conditions using viscosity, fill ratio, mixer speed, blade radius, or Newton, froude or reynolds dimensionless numbers; recalculate Newton power number, given net impeller power, impeller speed, blade radius, and wet mass density.
The flip tip consists of a hinge at approximately 95% of the helicopter blade radius. During descent or other high-noise maneuvers, the tip of the rotor can "flip" up or down to adjust the wake location relative to the blade path.
