Report KD 697 has been added to the menu KD-reports. The tittle of this report is: “Determination of the starting torque coefficient Cqstart for constant chord and tapered blades”. The starting torque coefficient for a tapered blade appears to be about a factor two higher than for a constant chord blade for rotors with the same design tip speed ratio. This report replaces the note “Comparing starting torques – – -” which was written earlier about this subject.
