Abstract:
This paper introduces a tilt-rotor flight simulation platform for research and teaching purposes implementing a real-time simulation of the Bell XV-15 aircraft. The mathematical model of the XV-15 aircraft has been implemented including simplified models for the aerodynamics of the whole aircraft, rotors, and engine dynamics. Hence, the simulation is performed in a graphic environment to reproduce the simulated flight and to interact with it using commands given by the pilot. The simulation platform is implemented using MATLAB/Simulink®, while the input commands are set using USB peripherals, i.e., a flight stick and a pedal board. Instead, the visualization environment is performed using FlightGear, an open-source and cross-platform software that is widely used in research. The result is a portable tilt-rotor simulator to be executed on a commercial pc, while ensuring real-time performance. The tilt-rotor flight simulator is also validated by a licensed helicopter pilot returning positive feedback regarding the flight experience.
