Abstract:

A computational framework for coupled aeroelastic analysis of helicopter rotors was developed, tested and successfully validated as part of the HUSH program. The Python-based framework allows the combination of solvers of different disciplines for analysis of different rotorcraft problems in both serial and parallel computing environments. In addition, the framework standardized code interfaces such that multiple codes which have similar functionality can be substituted with ease thereby increasing the spectrum of verification and validation.
