VLES of flow field around helicopter blades in hover

A Very Large Eddy Simulation (VLES) of a flow field around helicopter blades in hover. Delayed wall behavior together with k-omega SST and coherent structure model were used in this simulation. The computation was wall-resolved (y+ = 1) and the overall size of the mesh is about 7,000,000 cells.
