Topic(s):JTI-CS-2012-2-GRC-02-007 - Wind tunnel tests on a common helicopter platform and contribution to its optimised aerodynamic design
Call for proposal:SP1-JTI-CS-2012-02See other projects for this call
Funding scheme:JTI-CS - Joint Technology Initiatives - Clean Sky
The project pertains to the wind tunnel testing of a common helicopter platform of the heavy-weight class. The aim of the testing activity is the evaluation of the effectiveness (mainly in terms of drag reduction) of the shape optimisation performed by GRC consortium on severall components. Both original and optimised models will be tested to assess the optimisation effectiveness by comparison.
The tests will complemented by a CFD simulation activity and finally a physical interpretation of the obtained results will be presented.
