This investigation focuses on the development of multibody analytical models to predict the dynamic response, aeroelastic stability, and blade loading of a soft-inplane tiltrotor wind-tunnel model. Comprehensive rotorcraft-based multibody analyses enable modeling of the rotor system to a high level of detail such that complex mechanics and nonlinear effects associated with control system geometry and joint deadband may be considered. The influence of these and other non-linear effects on the aeromechanical behavior of the tiltrotor model are examined. A parametric study of the design parameters which may have influence on the aeromechanics of the soft-inplane rotor system are also included in this investigation.

Abstract

This investigation focuses on the development of multibody analytical models to predict the dynamic response, aeroelastic stability, and blade loading of a soft-inplane tiltrotor wind-tunnel model. Comprehensive rotorcraft-based multibody analyses enable modeling of the rotor system to a high level of detail such that complex mechanics and nonlinear effects associated with control system geometry and joint deadband may be considered. The influence of these and other non-linear effects on the aeromechanical behavior of the tiltrotor model are examined. A parametric study of the design parameters which may have influence on the aeromechanics of the soft-inplane rotor system are also included in this investigation.
