Abstract:

This report summarizes the efforts and results of the predesign of the Second-Generation Comprehensive Helicopter Analysis System also referred to as the System. Attention is focused on the solution to problems that are inherent in the design, development, maintenance, validation, and use of a system that satisfies the objectives and requirements set forth in the Statement of Work. The objectives and design considerations are presented, along with a comprehensive design that will enable the realization of all objectives through the use of dynamic component coupling techniques, a comprehensive but simple user-oriented control language, and an extensive library of technical modules. System usage has been described in three levels Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced. Suggested responsibilities and relationships of the various agencies during the Development Phase are presented also development schedules, documentation, and testing requirements are included. The concept of a Baseline Review Board and its activities are offered to enhance quality assurance control. Based on the results of the Predesign Phase, the Second-Generation Comprehensive Helicopter Analysis System has been determined by Control Data Corporation and Kaman Aerospace Corporation to be a feasible system that will provide users with a viable vehicle for current and future endeavors in the prediction of performance, stability and control, acoustics, loads, and aeroelastic stability characteristics of rotorcraft.
