## Abstract

Currently, the analytical form of the velocity field induced by a helical vortex filament is well known as Hardin’s solution (1982). But essentially the same result had been obtained by a Japanese scientist Sandi Kawada, which predates Hardin by as long as 46 years. Kawada (1936) provided a comprehensive treatment of deriving the induced velocity by helical vortices with a view to applying it to the

propeller theory. This paper recollects Kawada’s contribution, together with his life devoted to lead the Japanese aeronautical engineering in the time of its dawning.
