Aerodyn hub loads


Are the rotor/blade weights included in the formulae for the aerodynamic loads RtAeroFxh, RtAeroFyh. RtAeroFzh, RtAeroMxh, RtAeroMyh and RtAeroMzh calculated in the aerodyn module?

Dear @Jarred.Kenworthy,

No, the AeroDyn rotor loads only consider the aerodynamic contribution to the rotor loads–found by integrating the aerodynamic loads along each blade.

If you want the rotor loads including weight, inertia, etc. you can find these in the ElastoDyn rotor outputs, e.g., LSShftFxa (RotThrust).

Best regards,
