Methods and Experiments for NOvel Rotorcraft

Dr Morales and Prof Turner awarded an EPSRC Research Project.
Methods and Experiments for NOvel Rotorcraft

Tilt-Rotor V-22 Osprey

The project is part of a recently awarded EPSRC research project called MENtOR (Methods and Experiments for Novel Rotorcraft). MENtOR is a large collaborative research project which involves seven British universities and aims at integrating various methods and tools for the design and the analysis of the next generation of rotorcraft. This new research is required because of the many possible rotorcraft configurations which range from conventional helicopters to the more complex tilt-rotors.

Leicester will seek new envelope protection analysis and control tools that can alleviate instabilities due to aero-elastic effects known as whirl flutters.

More information can be found at: MENtOR and EP/S009981/1
