Metodyka wyznaczania parametrów ruchu ustalonego śmigłowca na przykładzie lotu poziomego i zawisu

Krzysztof Jankowski

In the paper the methods of construction of the equilibrium curves are presented. Equations of steady motion are derived from general dynamical equations of a helicopter three-dimensional motion. It is shown that a complete description of steady rectilinear motion demands the use of twenty-four equations in twenty-four parameters, and for hover – twenty-one equations in twenty-one parameters. The exemplary numerical results for the Mi-6 helicopter are presented.
