Basic Helicopter Aerodynamics is widely appreciated as an easily accessible, rounded introduction to the first principles of the aerodynamics of helicopter flight. Simon Newman has brought this third edition completely up to date with a full new set of illustrations and imagery. An accompanying website www.wiley.com/go/seddon contains all the calculation files used in the book, problems, solutions, PPT slides and supporting MATLAB® code.

Simon Newman addresses the unique considerations applicable to rotor UAVs and MAVs, and coverage of blade dynamics is expanded to include both flapping, lagging and ground resonance. New material is included on blade tip design, flow characteristics surrounding the rotor in forward flight, tail rotors, brown-out, blade sailing and shipborne operations.

Concentrating on the well-known Sikorsky configuration of single main rotor with tail rotor, early chapters deal with the aerodynamics of the rotor in hover, vertical flight, forward flight and climb. Analysis of these motions is developed to the stage of obtaining the principal results for thrust, power and associated quantities. Later chapters turn to the characteristics of the overall helicopter, its performance, stability and control, and the important field of aerodynamic research is discussed, with some reference also to aerodynamic design practice.

This introductory level treatment to the aerodynamics of helicopter flight will appeal to aircraft design engineers and undergraduate and graduate students in aircraft design, as well as practising engineers looking for an introduction to or refresher course on the subject.

About the Author:

The late John Seddon PhD, DSc, CEng, CFF, FRAeS, was a research scientist at the Royal Aircraft Establishment and then Director-General of Research (Air) in the British Ministry of Defence. He later became a consultant to Westland Helicopters.

Simon Newman MSc(Eng), PhD, CEng, MRAeS, FIMA, CMath, was a Principal Aerodynamicist and Principal Dynamicist at Westland Helicopters. He then joined the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at the University of Southampton where he is now Senior Lecturer in Helicopter Engineering.

Review:

“In summary, this greatly improved edition is going to be of interest to all those young people wishing to embark on the understanding of the helicopter, without the fuss of too much detail and too much theory.”  (Aeronautical Journal, 1 August 2013)
