      Like 'winglets' and 'sharklets' for airliner wings, the tip curvature and up/down sweep of helicopter rotors can make a big difference in terms of airfoil efficiency. Scimitar-shaped tips have appeared on recent Sikorsky and Eurocopter designs that feature upward and downward sweep as well as swept tips and short sections that are effectively.   The 35 foot span, 7-bladed main rotor has blade of almost 3 foot chord width, with new airfoil designs, twist, and taper to handle the engines’ 71% power increase. The new blade tips are designed to improve hover performance, and a composite cuff attachment allows attachment of each blade to the elastomerically-articulated titanium rotor head.

    The complexity of the flow induced by a helicopter is illustrated by the number of fundamental fluid dynamic research problems present and a summary sketch of these problems is depicted in Fig. , at Mach numbers typical of operation, the flow near the rapidly rotating blade is compressible while the flow in the wake of the helicopter rotor blades is substantially incompressible because Cited by:   Modern airfoils for helicopters are by their nature non-symmetrical, because they are much more efficient in developing lift with less power. The airfoils for all the US military helicopters in production (UH, AH-1, CH, CH) are non-symmet.

    UH60 Platform. Operational since , the H60 is in service or on order with 25 international customers. The BLACK HAWK helicopter series can perform a wide array of missions, including the tactical transport of troops, electronic warfare, and air medical evacuation.

Utmost importance to ensure that the airfoil section data arc free of inaccuracies. A critical assessment of the SCI and SCR8 airfoil data used on the UH main rotor blade was performed for that reason. Nine sources of wind tunnel data were examined, all of which contain SCI data and four of which also contain SCR8 Size: 1MB.

To evaluate the NASA Ames by Foot Wind Tunnel as a hover testing facility, rotor performance data were compared with predictions, UH aircraft flight test data, and UH model-scale data from other test.

Book. Jan ; J. Leishmann A critical assessment of UH main rotor blade airfoil data A critical assessment of the SC and SCR8 airfoil data used on the UH main rotor. The UH Blackhawk is a twin-turbine-engine, single-rotor utility helicopter with a tricycle-type landing gear.

It has a four-blade main rotor system. The UH is used mainly for tactical transport of troops, supplies, and equipment. Tex-Air Parts International provides a wide range of repairs to Main and Tail Rotor blades.

We specialize in repairs that put a damaged blade safely back in the air. Some of the repairs we do are: 1. Leading edge abrasion strip replacement.

Composite and metal skin repairs. Double repairs. Full chord skin repairs. Body core repairs. Corrective actions are any actions decreasing AOA or velocity of airflow that help the situation. There are similarities in the critical conditions for compressibility and retreating blade stall, with notable exceptions—compressibility occurs at high rotor RPM, and retreating blade stall occurs at low rotor RPM.

Some variation to these data can be expected as a result of subsequent engine power rating changes and aircraft design changes. Main rotor diameter: ft., 4 blades, airfoil SC and SCR8.

Main rotor blade chord: ft., tip swept aft 20 degrees, blade twist negative 18 degrees. Main rotor solidity, main rotor tip speed: fps. In addition to these new technologies, the chord of the main rotor blade was increased by 16% to achieve higher cruise speeds, especially at altitude.

The UHM also incorporated major advancements in vibration control technologies developed by Sikorsky for its S commercial program. UH Rotor Airloads/Blade Loads - Comments Robert A.
