Does anyone here know if the blade tips on helicopters get hot due to aerodynamic heating? Alternately does anyone here know a good reference for how to estimate how hot they get? I understand aerodynamic heating starts to become significant at Mach .8 or so. Does anyone have a formula for the way to calculate this heating effect?
Thanks for any help
