1) I think about 1000 radial stations are required for a converged calculation. 2) The first plot is of a rotor with linear twist showing the lift coefficient variation with rbar in hover. The second plot is the lift coefficient max along the radius which looks to be about 1.2.

The maximum thrust of the rotor in hover in terms of thrust coefficient is 0.0183.

...The Airfoil & Theories of LiftAirfoil
Definition:
Have you noticed the curved shape of a bird's wing? An airplane's wing is curved also. A wing is designed for flight. It has a special shape called an airfoil. The airfoil shape provides a lifting force when air flows around it. Airfoil shapes can be found on wings, fans and propellers.
Importance:
An airplane’s airfoil plays a...

...Variations in Humans
Aim: To find the differences in human size from measurement
Apparatus: Seven to five friends, measuring tape
Method:
1. Choose five/seven friends
2. Take height of each person
3. Record data in appropriate manner
4. Process data collected
5. Make evaluation
Observation: The males in most case were taller than the females and had a general height of 5 feet 8 inches, while the females remained in the area of 5 feet and 1 inch to 5 feet...

...LIFT, DRAG AND MOMENT OF A NACA 0015 AIRFOIL
by Steven D. Miller
DEPARTMENT OF AEROSPACE ENGINEERING
THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY
28 MAYi 2008
ABSTRACT
A NACA 0015 symmetrical airfoil with a 15% thickness to chord ratio was
analyzed to determine the lift, drag and moment coefficients. A 2D airfoil was placed
in a low speed wind tunnel with pressure taps along its surface and a pitot probe
downstream to...

...Though he promised to work with Congress, the President also made clear that he would search for ways to go around them "whenever and wherever I can" if they do not cooperate. The President mentioned the College Opportunity Summit, which DSpar attended, to work on making college education a reality for all students. The President then received a thumbs up from Speaker Boehner after a reference to his humble beginnings as a barkeep's son. Boehner sat stone-faced the rest of the night.

Lift The Ban
Pit bulls are the most lovable and loyal type of dogs until they are placed into the hands of the wrong trainers who mistreat, neglect and use them for fighting. Pit bulls used to be one of the most well-liked pets and they used to represent the American Military. Over the years the pit bull became used for fighting dogs and that’s how they received such a bad rep. They are illustrated by many as these fierce, aggressive dogs who are trained to kill. But...
