A time-spectral and adjoint-based optimization procedure that is particularly efficient
for the analysis and shape design of helicopter rotors is developed. The time-spectral
method is a fast and accurate algorithm to simulate periodic, unsteady flows by transform-
ing them to a steady-state analysis using a Fourier spectral derivative temporal operator.
An accompanying steady-state adjoint formulation for periodic unsteady problems is then
