A comparison, between selected wind tunnel data from the NEW MEXICO measuring campaign and CFD computations are shown. The present work, documents that a state of the art CFD code, including a laminar turbulent transition model, can provide good agreement with experimental data. Good agreement is shown for the integral loads, radial distributions of blades forces, pressure distributions, and the velocity profiles up- and downstream of the rotor.
