MetadataShow full item record
A method of optimizing the selection of a powerplant based upon engine and fuel weight is developed for use in a conceptual helicopter design course. Historical data is analyzed to verify and modify existing formulae used to estimate engine performance and engine installation weight Computational programs for use on a hand-held computer and the IBM 3033 are developed to predict analytically engine fuel flow characteristics and to optimize engine selection.
