Instability Mechanism of Roll/Lateral Biodynamic Rotorcraft–Pilot Couplings
The paper investigates the basic mechanism of aeroservoelastic pilot-assisted oscillation about the roll axis due to the interaction with pilot's arm biomechanics. The motivation stems from the
Helicopter Roll-Axis Instabilities induced by Pilot Cyclic Control: A Physical Explanation
The main objective of this paper is to give a basic understanding of the mechanisms through which pilot cyclic inputs in lateral cyclic interacts with high-order rotor dynamics destabilizing the


Prediction and Simulator Verification of Roll/Lateral Adverse Aeroservoelastic Rotorcraft–Pilot Couplings
The involuntary interaction of a pilot with an aircraft can be described as pilot-assisted oscillations. Such phenomena are usually only addressed late in the design process when they manifest
Bioaeroservoelastic Analysis of Involuntary Rotorcraft-Pilot Interaction
This work presents the integration of a detailed biomechanical model of the arm of a helicopter pilot and an equivalently detailed aeroservoelastic model of a helicopter, resulting in what has been
Understanding the peculiarities of rotorcraft, pilot, couplings
Rotorcraft pilots are familiar with potential instabilities or with annoying limit cycle oscillations that arise from the effort to control aircraft with high response bandwidth actuation systems.
Measuring, Modeling and Mitigating Biodynamic Feedthrough
Vehicle accelerations affect the human body in various ways. In some cases, accelerations cause involuntary motions of limbs like arms and hands. If someone is engaged in a manual control task at the
An Energetic Approach to Aeroelastic Rotorcraft-Pilot Couplings Analysis
This paper describes an energetic method using multibond graphs to model multi-physical systems. Its potential in building physical meaningful graphs that represent equivalent mathematical models of
Anatomy, modelling and prediction of aeroservoelastic rotorcraft pilot coupling
Research activity and results obtained within the European project ARISTOTEL (2010-2013) are presented. It deals with anatomy, modelling and prediction of Rotorcraft Pilot Coupling (RPC) phenomena,
