The conceptual phase of helicopter design requires that many calculations and iterations be completed. Often specifications are exceeded in the latter stages of the design, requiring a complete rework of the design to being these specifications within limits. This thesis develops a program to be used in the Helicopter Design - AE-4306 course taught by the Department of Aeronautics at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California to alleviate many of the tedious calculations required in conceptual design development. This program provides the student with the ability to perform trade-off studies to enhance design parameters.
