Aircraft loads assessment for windmilling sustained engine imbalance condition.

Hugo Marcelo Nunes 20 May 2005 (has links)
The failure of an aircraft engine fan blade produces an unbalanced rotor condition. Even after the engine is shutdown, the aerodynamic forces may keep the rotors running during the remainder of the flight. This condition can induce significant vibratory loads throughout the airframe that may damage the airframe structure and critical equipments and also affect the crew's ability to sustain a safe flight. This work intends to present a numerical methodology to assess dynamic vibratory loads in a commercial aircraft under windmilling sustained engine imbalance condition, necessary to demonstrate compliance with the current aeronautical design rules. The problem is treated as linear and is formulated in frequency domain. Direct and modal formulations are described. Particular study is made to build up ways to incorporate damping in the system considering different formulations. Some physical effects present in this problem, such as gyroscopic and aerodynamic loads, are also investigated. In order to assess the dynamic loads, an integrated finite element model of aircraft and engine is necessary. Since the aircraft and engine models are usually developed by different groups, which need to exchange them, condensation techniques are extensively used, and some of these techniques are detailed herein. Methods used to improve the accuracy of results obtained in modal formulation are also discussed. Finally, the proposed methods are applied to a mid size commercial jet and the outcomes are analyzed.

Estudo do desempenho de helicópteros monomotores operando no regime de auto-rotação.

Luiz Eduardo Miranda José Rodrigues 00 December 2001 (has links)
Nesta pesquisa são estudados os efeitos provocados pela perda de potência líquida através do rotor de helicópteros monomotores ocasionando o regime de operação conhecido como auto-rotação. São deduzidas as equações correspondentes desde o momento em que ocorre a perda de potência até quando o regime de auto-rotação já está estabilizado. Para o estudo realizado, faz-se uso das teorias da quantidade-de-movimento e do elemento-de-pá. Também é apresentado um modelo semi-empírico para o traçado do "diagrama altura versus velocidade". Nele estão demonstradas as regiões nas quais o vôo da aeronave fica restrito no caso da auto-rotação. Análises qualitativa e quantitativa do estudo realizado são levadas a cabo por meio de comparações dos resultados obtidos neste trabalho com os obtidos por diversos autores e disponíveis na literatura.
