Pagination or Media Count:
The computer program for a comprehensive analytical model of rotorcraft aerodynamics and dynamics is described. This analysis is designed to calculate rotor performance, loads, and noise the helicopter vibration and gust response the flight dynamics and handling qualities and the system aeroelastic stability. The analysis is a combination of structural, inertial, and aerodynamic models, that is applicable to a wide range of problems and a wide class of vehicles. The analysis is intended for use in the design, testing, and evaluation of rotors and rotorcraft, and to be a basis for further development of rotary wing theories. This report documents the computer program that implements the analysis.
