Abstract

The new generation of advanced rotorcraft call for simulation models with higher fidelity than those currently in use. Blade element models have been shown to possess the fidelity and accuracy necessary for such demanding applications. However, a blade element model incorporating the requisite complexity would be too slow for real-time applications. Parallel processing offers a way to speed up such computation and meet real-time frequency bandwidth requirements. In this paper the details of a parallel blade element rotorcraft flight simulation model are presented. The response and stability tasks are described here in detail. Some numerical results for the 013-6 helicopter are presented.
