Hello NREL forum,
Is there a way to approximate the blade root moments (out-of-plane/in-plane) of a tilted rotor with preconed blades, if I have available as output the blade root moments/forces of a simulation with zero tilt & precone. I know it won’t be accurate since these two angles won’t have been considered during the simulation, but I am looking for the extra force contributions that could be added such as to approximate as far as possible a tilted/coned rotor. I ran 2 cases in FAST and the in-plane moments do not differ much, but the out-of-plane have big deviation. So, I am most interested in the latter.
