Foundations of Helicopter Flight Paperback / softback
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.
