Abstract


To determine the load distribution in main helicopter rotor blade in study Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Finite Element Method (FEM) software is used. The aim of the present investigation is the development of a CFD and FEM by using CFD computation procedure capable of accurately simulating the pressure distribution test and velocity test of main helicopter blade and using FEM to simulating flow of thermal behavior test. For this purpose the complete of main rotor blade in CATIA model are used in CATIA modeling. Primary attention in this investigation is focused on defining load on main helicopter rotor blade because of metal trailing edge segments of these blade were replaced with a new segments made from honeycomb composite materials. As critical structural parts with greetings to strength here are glued joints between metal and composite segments of trailing edge are considered. For precise stress analysis of these segments, including glued joints, the finite element method is used.
