Wind-tunnel test of an articlulated helicopter rotor model with several tip shapes by John D Berry Download PDF EPUB FB2

Of a rotor, a wind-tunnel test has been conducted using a single articulated model rctor system with five interchangeable sets of blade tips. Subsequent to the first test, a sixth tip shape was evaluated for performance in c limited E-ange of flight conditions.

The first five tip shapes were evaluated fc;c acous. Wind-tunnel test of an articlulated helicopter rotor model with several tip shapes. Washington, D.C.: National Aeronautics and Space Administrat ion, Scientific and Technical Information Branch ; [Springfield, Va.: Fo r sale by the National Technical Information Service], Six interchangeable tip shapes were tested: a square (baseline) tip, an ogee tip, a subwing tip, a swept tip, a winglet tip, and a short ogee tip.

In hover at the lower rotational speeds the swept, ogee, and short ogee tips had about the same torque coefficient, and the subwing and winglet tips had a larger torque coefficient than the baseline square tip : R. Mineck and J.

Froman aerodynamic. Such vortical structures at a helicopter rotor model in a wind tunnel has been studied by optical measurement techniques, since only non-intrusive techniques are capable to obtain velocity data. Then, rotor blade tip shapes that have been used, or suggested for use, on past and present rotorcraft are examined to obtain a better understanding of the helicopter tip design problem.

This video highlights research into flow fields generated from rotorcraft to better understand their aerodynamic properties and enable the design of next gen. SMART helicopter Rotor Wind Tunnel Test. The benefits of high frequency, helicopter blade pitch control have been pursued under the DOD and NASA rotary wing technology programs for decades.

Yet mechanical implementation of higher harmonic control is limited in blade pitch frequencies and requires substantial hydraulic power to dynamically alter the blade pitch around the azimuth.

CONCLUDING REMARKS Wind-tunnel tests were performed on a four-bladed articulated rotor model to determine the effects on rotor dynamic response and aerodynamic performance of modifying the blade tip design. The aeroelastic rotor model was constructed such that the outboard 8 percent of the blade could be altered.
