Helicopter nonlinear aerodynamics modelling using VehicleSim

Article English OPEN
Castillo-Rivera, S.; Tomas-Rodriguez, M.;

This work describes a model developed to analyze the aerodynamic loads on a helicopter model on conventional configuration implemented with VehicleSim, a multibody software specialized in modelling mechanical systems composed by rigid bodies. The rotors are articulated ... View more
