Book Description:

Helicopters are highly capable rotating-wing aircraft with the unique ability to take off and land vertically, to hover, and to fly forward, backward, or sideways. They also have high noise levels, significant vibrations, and relatively large power requirements. This book provides a thorough, modern treatment of the aerodynamic principles of helicopters and other rotating-wing vertical lift aircraft. It covers the basics of aerodynamic analysis, helicopter performance and design, and advanced topics, including airfoil flows and unsteady aerodynamics. Every chapter includes numerous illustrations, a bibliography, and homework problems. Advanced undergraduate and graduate students, practicing engineers, and researchers, will welcome this useful text.
