An analytical method to predict the effects of rotor downwash on engine jet was proposed to investigate the flow pattern of helicopter engine jet. First, free wake analysis was carried out to calculate the rotor wake geometry and the downwash around the engine jet space. Then the engine jet path, cross section shape and physical variants were calculated and analyzed. Finally, an example was given to show the typical results for an insight into the influence of engine jet upon the temperature distribution around a helicopter. The method developed here can be used to predict rotor wake, engine jet and temperature distribution of a helicopter.
