The helicopter is subjected to a severe vibratory environment due to the unsteady wakes in hovering and forward flight. For this reason, aeroelastic analysis that predicts the vibratory stability of rotor blades is important in of helicopter research. Therefore, aeroelastic stability analyses of rotor blades were conducted using free-wake method.
