Description

The unique design problems which helicopters produce are many and complex. Through practical examples and illustrated case studies, supported by all the relevant theory, this primer text provides an accessible introduction which guides the reader through the theory, design, construction and operation of helicopters. Fundamental performance and control equations are developed, from which the book explores the rotor aerodynamic and dynamic characteristics of helicopters. Example calculations and performance predictions, reflecting current practice, show how to assess the feasibility of a design.

Key Features

  • Tackles the theory, design, construction and operation of helicopters
  • Illustrated with many practical examples and case studies
  • Provides the fundamental equations describing performance and dynamic behaviour

Readership

Advanced undergraduates and postgraduates in mechanical and aeronautical engineering. Professional engineers in the helicopter design industry. Engineering officers and pilots in the armed forces.

Reviews

"I consider that is it one of the best and most useful books available for the purpose of instructing undergraduate students or engineers about helicopters, their flight mechanics and design. It is a very readable book considering that the subject matter is scientific and basically quite complicated, and it covers areas that are not to be found in other helicopter texts." Professor, City University, London, UK.
