Slack wire strike protection concepts( Book )

3 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A design study has been conducted to establish slack wire strike protection concepts. The objective of the study was to define and investigate design concepts that could prevent helicopter mishaps caused by main and tail rotor controls entanglement with a slack wire. The study helicopter was an OH- 58A equipped with a taut wire strike protection system (WSPS)
YAH-63 helicopter crashworthiness simulation and analysis by V. L Berry( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under its ongoing crash research testing program, the Army conducted drop test T-41 using a YAH-63 prototype helicopter as a test article. The YAH-63 was residual hardware from the AAH competition of the mid 70's and incorporated many crashworthy features, including a high energy landing gear, crushable fuselage structure, stroking crew seats, high strength retention of large masses, and a crash-resistant fuel system. The test was conducted in July 1981 at the NASA Langley Impact Dynamics Research Facility. Many onboard experiments were also evaluated in the drop test with participation from NASA, the Navy, and the Army. The KRASH results were compared to test and showed generally good agreement for landing gear energy absorption, fuselage crushing, nose structure failure, and copilot/gunner seat stroking and bottoming. The acceleration levels in the fuselage agreed well in the mid fuselage impact, but predicted levels were lower than test levels in the forward fuselage, probably due to the hard armament structure on the test article not represented in the KRASH model. The comparison of results was greatly facilitated by the DATAMAP program that processed both the test and KRASH data and automated the plotting, overplotting, scaling, filtering, and integrating of the data
Lateral rollover protection concepts by Roy G Fox( Book )

3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Helicopter accidents in which the aircraft rolled over laterally are costly in aircraft damage. U.S. Army helicopter accident reports involving lateral rollover for a 6-1/2-year period were analyzed to determine their significant characteristics such that design concepts for rollover protection could be identified. The results of the accident analysis were applied to portions of crash survival specifications and design concepts for rollover protection. Dynamic rollover, when the aircraft is light on its landing gear, was investigated using computer simulation to identify pertinent parameters. A quick response from the pilot to reduce main rotor thrust is the primary means available for recovery. A preliminary evaluation of the KRASH computer simulation program was done for the rollover environment. Design concepts that either prevented the occurrence of a rollover accident or minimized the dangers to the occupants as the aircraft rolled over were investigated. An automatic rollover sensing and correction system was investigated. Wing and wide landing gear concepts can provide increased rollover resistance. Means of preventing hazardous main rotor pylon motion during a rollover accident were also investigated. (Author)
Flight test evaluation of a nonlinear hub spring on a UH-1H helicopter by P. J Hollifield( Book )

Conceptual design of a helicopter composite truss tail boom by David A Gallian( Book )

3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the results of a conceptual study of a helicopter composite truss tail boom. The study included the following tasks: design criteria, material properties, truss design and analysis, manufacturing techniques, and fabrication and ballistic testing. The results of the study indicate that a composite truss is a viable concept for a ballistically tolerant tail boom. (Author)
Engine/airframe/drive train dynamic interface documentation( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this program was to survey Bell Helicopter Textron past and present experiences as related to gas-turbine-powered helicopter engine/airframe/drive train dynamic interface problems as part of an overall Government effort to define specific areas in which future research funding should be placed to develop improved design, analytical and test methods to ensure helicopter dynamic compatibility. Thirteen dynamic interface problems have been documented with a detailed discussion, solutions considered and/or applied, and identifiable shortcomings. Recommendations are made for future research funding in five specific areas. The appendixes provide the detailed documentation for each of the dynamic interface problems

Operational evaluation of a Health and Usage Monitoring System (HUMS)( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes the results of a research program to evaluate structural usage monitoring and damage tolerance methodology using data collected concurrently during a helicopter flight program. The helicopter (a Bell Model 412 equipped with a Health and Usage Monitoring System (HUMS) and data recorder) was operated by Petroleum Helicopters Inc. (PHI) during the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, under the FAA's Project HeliSTAR. The mission was referred to as the Atlanta Short Haul Mission (ASHM) and involved many short flights to provide pick up and delivery service at the Olympics. The usage data collected for the ASHM was used to perform fatigue life calculations and damage tolerance evaluations on selected rotor system components know as Principal Structural Elements (PSE's). The usage data from the ASHM were compared to certification data and to data from a previous study for a mission called the Gulf Coast Mission (GCM) which involved primarily long cruise flights. Although the usage was more severe for the ASHM than the CGM, the results of the comparison showed that usage monitoring would provide benefits in extending retirement times or inspection intervals, compared to certification, especially if high/low altitude effects were considered. In addition to usage monitoring evaluations, guidelines for HUMS certification are discussed along with potential economic benefits and simplified "mini-HUMS" approaches to provide low cost systems with high paybacks
