Software integration for automated stability analysis and design optimization of a bearingless rotor blade
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-04-06)
The concept of applying several disciplines to the design and optimization processes may not be new, but it does not currently seem to be widely accepted in industry. The reason for this might be the lack of well-known ...
A physics based investigation of gurney flaps for enhancement of rotorcraft flight characteristics
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-03-26)
Helicopters are versatile vehicles that can vertically take off and land, hover, and perform maneuver at very low forward speeds. These characteristics make them unique for a number of civilian and military applications. ...
Using tightly-coupled CFD/CSD simulation for rotorcraft stability analysis
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-01-17)
Dynamic stall deeply affects the response of helicopter rotor blades, making its modeling accuracy very important. Two commonly used dynamic stall models were implemented in a comprehensive code, validated, and contrasted ...
Flight mechanics and control oriented modeling for next generation on-blade control concepts
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-08-30)
Physics based prediction of aeromechanical loads for the UH-60A rotor
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-04-12)
Helicopters in forward flight experience complex aerodynamic phenomena to various degrees. In low speed level flight, the vortex wake remains close to the rotor disk and interacts with the rotor blades to give rise to blade ...
A matched-harmonic confluence approach to rotor loads prediction with comprehensive application to flight test
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-09-18)
Future management of helicopter fleets will be more heavily based on individual component damage tracking and less on legacy usage monitoring (flight parameter-based) methods. This enhances health assessment capabilities ...
