Handling-Qualities Optimization and Trade-offs in Rotorcraft Flight Control Design

  title={Handling-Qualities Optimization and Trade-offs in Rotorcraft Flight Control Design},
  author={Mark B. Tischler and Christina M. Ivler and M. Hossein Mansur and K. K. Cheung and Tom Berger and Marcos Berrios},
Designing rotorcraft flight control systems to meet the handling qualities and stability margin requirements of Aeronautical Design Standard-33 (ADS-33E-PRF) and MIL-DTL-9490E ensures low-pilot workload, increased mission effectiveness and improved safety of operations in all weather and visibility conditions. The numerous requirements compete with one another and can result in a highly-constrained design space. Therefore, achieving a satisfactory design that makes best use of the limited… CONTINUE READING
