Abstract:

This report describes a mathematical model of rotorcraft that may be used to determine characteristics of performance, stability, response, and rotor blade loads. The complexity of the equations used requires the use of a digital computer for efficient solution. This four volume report describes the computer program in detail and illustrates the method of computing rotorcraft characteristics by specific example.
