The Helicopter: Thinking Forward, Looking Back

Authors / Details:

Why, after decades of research, analysis, and experimentation, is helicopter performance still where it is?

With this question, Dr. J. Gordon Leishman opens an invigorating discussion of technical problems influencing the performance of the helicopter, and provides a unique perspective into future challenges and new opportunities in realizing its full performance. The problems of the helicopter are assessed in terms of the interdependent aeromechanical factors that affect and limit its flight capabilities. While written primarily for researchers, engineers, managers, and policymakers in the rotorcraft field, the book assumes only a basic background in helicopter engineering and avoids detailed mathematical development, making it suitable for all helicopter enthusiasts.
