Boeing Stratocruiser (Classic Airliners) by Robert HEWSON

By Robert HEWSON

Boeings 377 is arguably the definitive layout one of the nice propliners of the Nineteen Fifties, being the main statesmanlike of all of them. The Stratocruiser tale isn't really a simple one, yet this background finds each point of the aircraftfrom its evolution and layout to its productiona and serviceand comprises whole information of operators and technical requirements.

Example text

Chapter 3 aims to provide sufficient knowledge and understanding to enable a basic flight simulation of a helicopter to be created. Chapter 4 discusses the problems of trim and stability, providing a range of analytical tools necessary to work at these two facets of helicopter flight mechanics. Chapter 5 extends the analysis of stability to considerations of constrained motion and completes the ‘working with models’ theme of Chapters 4 and 5 with a discussion on helicopter response characteristics.

3 Missing Topics It seems to be a common feature of book writing that the end product turns out quite different than originally intended and Helicopter Flight Dynamics is no exception. It was planned to be much shorter and to cover a wider range of subjects! In hindsight, the initial plan was perhaps too ambitious, although the extent of the final product, cut back considerably in scope, has surprised even the author. There are three ‘major’ topic areas, originally intended as separate chapters, that have virtually disappeared – ‘Stability and control augmentation (including active control)’, ‘Design for flying qualities’ and ‘Simulation validation (including system identification tools)’.

However, while it may be ‘beyond dispute’ that welldeveloped theories of flight are vital, a measure of the development level at any one time can be gauged by the ability of Industry to predict behaviour correctly before first flight, and rotorcraft experience to date is not good. In the 1989 AHS Nikolsky Lecture (Ref. 2), Crawford promotes a ‘back to basics’ approach to improving rotorcraft modelling in order to avoid major redesign effort resulting from poor predictive capability. Crawford cites examples of the redesign required to improve, or simply ‘put right’, flight performance, vibration levels and flying qualities for a number of contemporary US military helicopters.
