The San Francisco Bay Area Chapter of AHS International will hold their Fifth Decennial AHS Aeromechanics Specialists' Conference on January 22-24, 2014 at Holiday Inn at Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco, California. These conferences, held every 10 years since 1974, have documented remarkable scientific advances and engineering achievements in rotorcraft aeromechanics. The theme of the Fifth Decennial AHS Aeromechanics Specialists' Conference is Current Challenges and Future Directions in Rotorcraft Aeromechanics. The General Chair for this event is Ms. Susan A. Gorton, NASA Langley Research Center and the Technical Chair is Dr. Hyeonsoo Yeo, U.S. Army Aeroflightdynamics Directorate (AFDD). Topics include areas related to rotorcraft aerodynamics, acoustics, dynamics, handling qualities, and testing. In particular, papers describing revolutionary rotorcraft concepts and emerging aeromechanics technologies to meet operational requirements of the Future Vertical Lift/Joint Multi-Role aircraft are planned.
