Helicopter Simulation Aerodynamics and Aeroacoustics

Helicopters and Aeroacoustics

Institute of Aerodynamics and Gas Dynamics

The working group Helicopters and Aeroacoustics deals mainly with the simulation of the helicopter system. The aim is to reproduce the system as realistically as possible in computer simulations, especially concerning effects on the main rotor.

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.
