    Aeroelasticity and structural optimization of composite helicopter rotor blades with swept tips [microform] [] Yuan, K. A. Hampton, Va.: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Langley Research Center ; [Springfield, Va.: National Technical Information Service, distributor, ].   Aeroelasticity counteracting blade twist PaulPounds (Aeronautics) (OP) One of the problems of using torsionally soft rotor blades occurs at high collective pitch, if the blade is highly twisted. Swept back blades would go even further down this route (assuming higher rotor rpm is the way to go).

    Helicopter rotor blades spin at a relatively high angular speed and, although flexible, are effectively stiffened by centrifugal forces. Because of the free rotation in flap and lead-lag directions at the root in articulated rotors, a large component of their motion is as a rigid body. effects for helicopter rotor blades in hover and forward flight were investigated. To take into account the large deformations of rotor blades, a large deflection beam model was used. Also, to estimate unsteady wakes and calculate its induced velocities, a freewake model w .
