Aerodynamics and Aeroacoustics of Rotorcraft

AA261


Description

This course provides an introduction to vertical flight, helicopter configurations, blade element momentum theory for hover and forward flight, and vehicle performance modeling. Modeling of unsteady aerodynamic phenomena, static and dynamic stall on airfoils, rotor wake aerodynamics, acoustics in the rotating frame. Relevant concepts from potential theory for analytical representations of noise from rotating blades, hovering rotor noise, blade-vortex interactions and forward flight noise. Topics in rotorcraft aeromechanics and aeroacoustics research.
