Abstract:

Results of experiments to evaluate the degree to which dynamically similar models tested in the Princeton University Forward Flight Facility simulate the dynamics of full scale aircraft are presented. Two models were utilized, a single rotor helicopter and a tilt-wing VTOL aircraft. Excellent agreement between the response of the models and the full scale aircraft was obtained.
