dc.description.abstract An autogyro obtains remarkably high lift forces from a system of freely rotating blades and it is important to develop a theory which will explain the behaviour of an autogyro and will provide a method of estimating the effect of changes in the fundamental parameters of the system. A theory is developed depending on the assumptions that the angles of incidence of the blade elements are small, that the interference flow is similar to that caused by an ordinary aerofoil, and that only first order harmonics of periodic terms need be retained in the equations. An alternative method of analysis by considering the energy losses of an autogyro is developed in an appendix to the main report. en_US
