Basic Helicopter Aerodynamics (Aerospace Series) by John M. Seddon, Simon Newman

By John M. Seddon, Simon Newman

Basic Helicopter Aerodynamics is generally preferred as an simply obtainable, rounded creation to the 1st ideas of the aerodynamics of helicopter flight. Simon Newman has introduced this 3rd variation thoroughly brand new with a whole new set of illustrations and imagery. An accompanying web site www.wiley.com/go/seddon comprises all of the calculation records utilized in the ebook, difficulties, options, PPT slides and assisting MATLAB® code.
Simon Newman addresses the original issues acceptable to rotor UAVs and MAVs, and insurance of blade dynamics is extended to incorporate either flapping, lagging and flooring resonance. New fabric is integrated on blade tip layout, circulate 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 built to the degree of acquiring the critical effects for thrust, strength and linked amounts. Later chapters flip to the features of the final helicopter, its functionality, balance and keep an eye on, and the real box of aerodynamic study is mentioned, with a few reference additionally to aerodynamic layout practice.
This introductory point therapy to the aerodynamics of helicopter flight will attract airplane layout engineers and undergraduate and graduate scholars in plane layout, in addition to training engineers trying to find an advent to or refresher path at the topic.

Sample text

At this stage one might think the real question is why the fixed-wing aircraft has not died out. If we now return to Lilienthal we see the difficulty. Making the helicopter fly involves wrestling with a long catalogue of problems, some of which have been solved while there are others still to be solved – helicopters will always remain an intriguing challenge. During the gestation of the helicopter, it was necessary to invent the use of a tail rotor to stop the helicopter spinning round on the main rotor axis.

This tilting of the rotor disc plane permits moments about the helicopter centre of gravity to be produced, which provides for manoeuvring. Here is a system more elegant in principle than that of a fixed-wing aircraft, where such integration of functions is not possible. However, the combining of several features of rotor control in one function causes its own difficulties. One can pursue the helicopter rotor’s virtues one stage further by noting that the direction of airflow through the rotor becomes reversed in descent allowing blade lift to be produced without power (‘autorotation’), permitting a controlled landing in the event of engine failure.

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. The first situation to be investigated is climb. 5 Momentum Theory for Vertical Climb Consider the rotor in climb, where, again, we observe the flow from the point of view of the rotor.
