Simulation of helicopters
The term helicopter simulation refers to the computation and observation of the processes around and on the helicopter with the aid of computational methods, which are usually solved with the aid of computers due to the complexity involved. At the IAG the dynamic response behaviour of the helicopter as well as the aerodynamics of the flow around the helicopter and the aeroacoustics of the helicopter flight are investigated. The objective here is to further improve the applied methods or to develop or implement new methods. With the help of improved methods, it is intended to achieve a shorter development time for aerodynamically improved helicopters on the one hand, and on the other hand to examine flow phenomena that could not yet be simulated using such methods.
