The paper focuses on the loads applied to the helicopter blade cross-sections in the multibody dynamics system. The main objective is to simplify the blade aerodynamics calculation and avoid time-consuming CFD methods. For this reason, the way of computing blade aerodynamics is proposed by using multibody dynamics methods with a linear-elastic blade model. As the primary tool for further research, the MCS Adams software package is selected. Splitting the main rotor blade into a finite number of sections, each having its own average value of installation and coning angles, simplifies the calculation. Afterward, expressions for the total flow velocity around the blade section and its angle of attack are obtained through vector operations. This provides a measure of aerodynamic forces acting on each section in its cross-sectional coordinate system. In conclusion, the article provides the formalized method of aerodynamic force distribution between blade sections in the multibody model as well as the correlation between the flow coordinate system and the blade chord coordinate system.
