Abstract:

The Joint ArmyNavy Rotorcraft Analysis and Design JANRAD computer program has been developed at the Naval Postgraduate School to aid in the preliminary design of rotorcraft and has been updated to include a Graphical User Interface Gul. This thesis is a continuation of the program focusing on stability and control analysis. The trim solution for a specified flight condition is computed from the Performance module of the program. This trim solution is then used to compute stability derivatives for the specified flight condition and a linear state space model is created. This solution can then be used to perform various time and frequency domain analyses or can be saved to a file for future use.
