The heritage of the helicopter could be traced again to the chinese language flying best (c. four hundred B.C.) and to the paintings of Leonardo da Vinci, who sketched designs for a vertical flight computer using a screw-type propeller. within the overdue 19th century, Thomas Edison experimented with helicopter types, knowing that no such desktop will be capable of fly till the improvement of a sufficiently light-weight engine. whilst the inner combustion fuel engine got here at the scene round 1900, the level was once set for the genuine improvement of helicopter technology.
While this article offers a concise background of helicopter improvement, its precise objective is to supply the engineering research required to layout a hugely profitable rotorcraft. towards that finish the ebook deals thorough, accomplished assurance of the speculation of helicopter flight: the weather of vertical flight, ahead flight, functionality, layout, arithmetic of rotating platforms, rotary wing dynamics and aerodynamics, aeroelasticity, balance and keep watch over, stall, noise and more.
Wayne Johnson has labored for the U.S. military and NASA on the Ames examine heart in California. via his corporation Johnson Aeronautics, he's engaged within the improvement of software program that's used through the international for the research of rotorcraft. during this ebook, Dr. Johnson has compiled a huge source that's crucial studying for any pupil or aeronautical engineer attracted to the layout and improvement of vertical-flight aircraft.
