Standard Helicopter Aerodynamics is widely valued as a quickly available, rounded introduction to the first principles of the aerodynamics of helicopter flight. Simon Newman has brought this 3rd edition totally up to date with a full brand-new set of illustrations and imagery. An accompanying site www.wiley.com/go/seddon includes all the computation files used in the book, issues, options, PPT slides and supporting MATLAB(R) code. Simon Newman attends to the special considerations applicable to rotor UAVs and MAVs, and coverage of blade dynamics is expanded to consist of both flapping, lagging and ground resonance. New material is included on blade suggestion design, circulation attributes surrounding the rotor in forward flight, tail rotors, brown-out, blade sailing and shipborne operations. Concentrating on the widely known Sikorsky configuration of single main rotor with tail rotor, early chapters handle the aerodynamics of the rotor in hover, vertical flight, forward flight and climb. Analysis of these movements is developed to the phase of getting the principal outcomes for drive, power and associated amounts. Later chapters turn to the attributes of the overall helicopter, its performance, stability and control, and the important field of aerodynamic research study is discussed, with some reference likewise to aerodynamic design practice. This introductory level treatment to the aerodynamics of helicopter flight will certainly appeal to airplane design engineers and undergraduate and college students in airplane design, in addition to practicing engineers looking for an intro to or refresher course on the topic.
