      A novel sensor network for measuring rotorcraft blade elastic twist in flight using an expansion of strain gage theory is proposed and demonstrated. The embedded sensor has neglig. blade is idealized as an Euler–Bernoulli beam in bending and a rod in torsion. The theory is rigorously derived from first principles and shows that a sawtooth shaped sensor will measure twist directly without any numerical integration. The network is modeled computationally for a blade undergoing arbitrary torsional and bending moments.

      The ability to photogrammetrically measure blade deflection during wind tunnel testing was successfully demonstrated. The deformation of small-scale rotating blade was measured using DIC system (Lawson and Sirohi, ). A commercial DIC software was used to obtain bending and twist on three different types of rotors with varying flexibility. Rotor-blade coupled torsional frequencies of the model rotor based on the FEM based quasi-modal technique were compared with a complete FEM analysis of the model rotor. Both methods gave results in good agreement. We also compared the frequencies measured through rotation testing of the model rotor to calculations.

The SPA technique requires calculated mode shapes for the tested rotor blade and strain measurements from the rotor's wind tunnel or flight test.

Test conditions selected for this study include cases in which blade. The calculated blade flap and chord bending and torsion moments were compared with the flight and wind tunnel measurements. The calculations have been conducted with the identical analysis options for all rotors (Ref. 12).

Blade Natural Frequencies The blade natural frequencies were calculated from 40% to % of the nominal rotor speed and. By modeling the complete rotor and taking blade elasticity into account, it is demonstrated that the torsional natural frequencies of a complete rotor-blade model can also become speed dependent.

First, a stiff rotor blade of known geometry was tested and its shape as measured by DIC was compared to the shape of the mold from which it was made. At a constant radial station, DIC measurements of the surface height of the rotor blade were compared to measurements from a LDS mounted in close proximity to the spinning rotor.

The rotor blade deformation measured by DIC is examined in this section. Fig. 12 shows the flap bending deformation of the rotor blade at 0° and 30° root pitch angle, at RPM over one revolution.

Note that images were continuously taken over revolutions at 16 evenly-spaced azimuthal locations, yielding images per camera at each. The test cases considered in this section refer to hingeless rotor blades whose equivalent structural properties resemble those of the Bölkow (now Airbus Helicopters) BO helicopter blades, with a radius of m rotating at rad/s, either in hover or in forward-flight at an advance ratio of μ = The first blade model analyzed is uniform, whereas the second one is strongly non.

The rotor blade is assumed to be an elastic beam undergoing flap bending, lag bending, elastic twist, and axial deflections. the blade caused by aerodynamic pitching moments is the key mechanism here, the torsional stiffness of the blade is a key parameter affecting the authority of aerodynamic moments.

The structural properties of Higher harmonic Aeroacoustic Rotor Test (HART I) blades have been measured using the original set of blades tested in the wind tunnel in A comprehensive rotor dynamics analysis is performed to address the effect of the measured blade properties on airloads, blade motions, and structural loads of the rotor.

The focus of the present paper is the prediction of blade torsional loading. torsional mode shapes of the blade. The present paper has two goals. The first objective is to demon-strate how an aeroelastic analysis with two degrees offreedom (flap bending and twist), and whose equations are truncated consistently with an ordering scheme, can accurately predict the deformations of a rotor blade with negligible torsional.the sensitivity of overall blade vibration characteristics to torsional oscillations was also investigated from the equations of motion for the sample blade.
