Abstract:

Three items of primary importance had to be considered in the design of hot cycle rotor blades flapwise and chordwise natural frequency requirements, ability to withstand the extreme temperatures imposed on the structure by the hot gases, and reliability of the structure to provide safety of flight under the vibratory load conditions always present in helicopter rotor blades. Based on these considerations the blade construction was made as simple and straightforward as possible.
