Research and Markets: Basic Helicopter Aerodynamics - Completely Up to Date with a Full New Set of Illustrations and Imagery

Dépèche transmise le 3 novembre 2011 par Business Wire

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/cdf404/basic_helicopter_a) has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new book "Basic Helicopter Aerodynamics, 3rd Edition" to their offering.

"Basic Helicopter Aerodynamics" is widely appreciated as an easily accessible, rounded introduction to the first principles of the aerodynamics of helicopter flight. Simon Newman has brought this third edition completely up to date with a full new set of illustrations and imagery. An accompanying website contains all the calculation files used in the book, problems, solutions, PPT slides and supporting MATLAB code.

Simon Newman addresses the unique considerations applicable to rotor UAVs and MAVs, and coverage of blade dynamics is expanded to include both flapping, lagging and ground resonance. New material is included on blade tip design, flow characteristics surrounding the rotor in forward flight, tail rotors, brown-out, blade sailing and shipborne operations.

Concentrating on the well-known Sikorsky configuration of single main rotor with tail rotor, early chapters deal with the aerodynamics of the rotor in hover, vertical flight, forward flight and climb. Analysis of these motions is developed to the stage of obtaining the principal results for thrust, power and associated quantities. Later chapters turn to the characteristics of the overall helicopter, its performance, stability and control, and the important field of aerodynamic research is discussed, with some reference also to aerodynamic design practice.

This introductory level treatment to the aerodynamics of helicopter flight will appeal to aircraft design engineers and undergraduate and graduate students in aircraft design, as well as practising engineers looking for an introduction to or refresher course on the subject.

Key Topics Covered:

1 Introduction.

2 Rotor in Vertical Flight: Momentum Theory and Wake Analysis.

3 Rotor in Vertical Flight: Blade Element Theory.

4 Rotor Mechanisms for Forward Flight.

5 Rotor Aerodynamics in Forward Flight.

6 Aerodynamic Design.

7 Performance.

8 Trim, Stability and Control.

9 A Personal Look at the Future.

Appendix: Performance and Mission Calculation
