Rotorcraft Comprehensive Analysis
at ORAU Workforce Solutions

Date Posted: 12/23/2018

Opportunity Description

Title of Research Opportunity: Rotorcraft Comprehensive Analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics for Future Army Aviation The project involves modeling and simulation of rotorcraft using computational fluid dynamics and computational structural dynamics for rotorcraft performance, loads, stability, and/or acoustics. Research will support Army priorities for Future Vertical Lift and Next Generation UAS. Rotorcraft aeromechanics research within ARL/VTD is normally conducted using the Helios, RCAS, and CAMRAD II computational tools. The research opportunity includes developing aerodynamic and structural models for aircraft components, wind tunnel test articles, and full aircraft and using these models for computational research and validation with test data.
