Abstract:

The purpose of this program was to survey Bell Helicopter Textron past and present experiences as related to gas-turbine-powered helicopter engineairframedrive train dynamic interface problems as part of an overall Government effort to define specific areas in which future research funding should be placed to develop improved design, analytical and test methods to ensure helicopter dynamic compatibility. Thirteen dynamic interface problems have been documented with a detailed discussion, solutions considered andor applied, and identifiable shortcomings. Recommendations are made for future research funding in five specific areas. The appendixes provide the detailed documentation for each of the dynamic interface problems.
