Clearly written and well illustrated, the book focuses on fundamental physical relationships without a highly complex mathematical development. The emphasis on fundamentals makes the book an ideal - indeed, necessary - first step towards more advanced study. The book has found wide readership amongst engineers and others, such as pilots and middle-level managers in industry and government, whose work requires them to have more than a general, qualitative understanding of the whys and wherefores of helicopter flight. Contents The Development of Rotating-Wing Aircraft An Introduction to the Helicopter An Introduction to Hovering Theory Hovering and Vertical Flight Performance Analyses Factors Affecting Hovering and Vertical-Flight Performance Autorotation in Vertical Descent Physical Concepts of Blade Motion and Rotor Control The Aerodynamics of Forward Flight Forward-Flight Performance The Prediction and Effects of Rotor Blade Stall An Introduction to Helicopter Stability An Introduction to Helicopter Vibration Problems Appendices: Nomenclature, Bibliographies

Helicopter Theory by Wayne Johnson

The history of the helicopter may be traced back to the Chinese flying top (c. 400 B.C.) and to the work of Leonardo da Vinci, who sketched designs for a vertical flight machine utilizing a screw-type propeller. In the late nineteenth century, Thomas Edison experimented with helicopter models, realizing that no such machine would be able to fly until the development of a s The history of the helicopter may be traced back to the Chinese flying top (c. 400 B.C.) and to the work of Leonardo da Vinci, who sketched designs for a vertical flight machine utilizing a screw-type propeller. In the late nineteenth century, Thomas Edison experimented with helicopter models, realizing that no such machine would be able to fly until the development of a sufficiently lightweight engine. When the internal combustion gasoline engine came on the scene around 1900, the stage was set for the real development of helicopter technology. While this text provides a concise history of helicopter development, its true purpose is to provide the engineering analysis required to design a highly successful rotorcraft. Toward that end the book offers thorough, comprehensive coverage of the theory of helicopter flight: the elements of vertical flight, forward flight, performance, design, mathematics of rotating systems, rotary wing dynamics and aerodynamics, aeroelasticity, stability and control, stall, noise and more. Wayne Johnson has worked for the U.S. Army and NASA at the Ames Research Center in California. Through his company Johnson Aeronautics, he is engaged in the development of software that is used throughout the world for the analysis of rotorcraft. In this book, Dr. Johnson has compiled a monumental resource that is essential reading for any student or aeronautical engineer interested in the design and development of vertical-flight aircraft.
