The Helicopter Design Set contains three editions of new flagship volumes from the ATC library.
This set is a sister set to the Aircraft Design Set – but specifically for rotary-wing aircraft. It includes:
HELICOPTER DESIGN FEATURES
In this book we follow the evolution of the helicopter from rickety flying machine to modern multi-engine turbine helicopters – both civil and military. It is a fascinating story of materials, structures, systems and testing to make the safest and most efficient form of transport evolved by humankind. All of the technical features are explained in simple terms.
HELICOPTER FLIGHT DYNAMICS
How does a rotor blade generate lift at the expense of minimum drag? How does a pilot control a helicopter in static and moving flight over a relatively large flight envelope? Why are some rotors blades swept back? Why do some helicopters have two rotors? How can a massive helicopter fly so fast and yet hover at full weight? This book explains the hows of physical rotary-wing flight.
Wings make flight possible. Engines make flight sustainable. Ultimately, engines also make flight affordable and efficient. This beautifully illustrated volume explains the working of piston, turbine, turbofan, turboprop and turboshaft engines in plain language – as they are applied to both fixed and rotary-wing aircraft.
