By John M. Seddon, Simon Newman

Basic Helicopter Aerodynamics is greatly favored as an simply obtainable, rounded advent to the 1st rules of the aerodynamics of helicopter flight. Simon Newman has introduced this 3rd variation thoroughly brand new with an entire new set of illustrations and imagery. An accompanying site comprises all of the calculation records utilized in the publication, difficulties, recommendations, PPT slides and aiding MATLAB® code.
Simon Newman addresses the original issues appropriate to rotor UAVs and MAVs, and assurance of blade dynamics is improved to incorporate either flapping, lagging and floor resonance. New fabric is integrated on blade tip layout, stream features surrounding the rotor in ahead flight, tail rotors, brown-out, blade crusing and shipborne operations.
Concentrating at the famous Sikorsky configuration of unmarried major rotor with tail rotor, early chapters take care of the aerodynamics of the rotor in hover, vertical flight, ahead flight and climb. research of those motions is constructed to the level of acquiring the important effects for thrust, energy and linked amounts. Later chapters flip to the features of the final helicopter, its functionality, balance and keep watch over, and the $64000 box of aerodynamic examine is mentioned, with a few reference additionally to aerodynamic layout practice.
This introductory point remedy to the aerodynamics of helicopter flight will entice plane layout engineers and undergraduate and graduate scholars in plane layout, in addition to working towards engineers searching for an creation to or refresher path at the topic.

Example text

In climb, the situation is relatively straightforward to model; however, in descent problems arise. This comment is particularly focused on the use of a momentum-based theory. The flow details become very complex in a medium descent rate condition where the descent rate is of similar magnitude to the induced velocity in hover. A quick view of this type of condition sees opposing flows at the rotor disc of similar magnitude. In order for a momentum theory to be applicable, there must be a realistic throughput of flow along the entire streamtube length.

Speed has always been the touchstone of the rotary-wing aircraft and there are many attempts at achieving fast forward flight. Among many, in the UK the most notable of late happened on 11 August 1986. 15. 16. 17), the highest point on Earth. Just to prove the point, because of equipment difficulties, it did it again the following day! 6 The Helicopter from an Engineering Viewpoint It is easy to invent a flying machine; more difficult to build one; to make it fly is everything. Otto Lilienthal, 1848–1896 14 Basic Helicopter Aerodynamics Lilienthal was a pioneer of gliding flight; however, the above quote makes the reader ponder whether he had the helicopter in mind when he wrote it.

12. This was a true convertiplane and demonstrated how one airframe could use powered rotors for vertical take-off and landing but perform transitions to and from autogyro-type forward flight. 12 The Rotodyne (Courtesy Agusta Westland) 11 Introduction The 1950s and 1960s decades saw many firsts. In June 1950 the world’s first scheduled helicopter passenger service was flown by a British European Airways S51 helicopter. Maiden flights were several: namely, the first turbine helicopter – Kaman K225 in December 1951; the first production rotorcraft with retractable undercarriage – Sikorsky S56 Mojave; the first twinturbine helicopter – Kaman HTK-1 Huskie; the first Soviet production helicopter – Mi 6 Hook; and the development of the flexstrap rotor hub by Hughes.
