Effect of the Simultaneous Variation in Blade Root Chord Length and Blade Taper on Maneuvering Manned Helicopter Control Effort

In this article, the influence of simultaneous variation in blade root chord length and blade taper on the flight control effort of maneuvering helicopter is researched. For this intention, helicopter models which are complex, control-oriented, physics-based models and capturing the main-physics and essential-dynamics are benefited. The influence of simultaneous variation in the blade root chord length and blade taper (i.e., in both chordwise and lengthwise directions dependently) on the control effort of a maneuvering manned helicopter and also on the closed-loop responses are worked. Comparisons in terms of the control effort and peak-values with and without variations in the blade root chord and blade taper changes are followed. For helicopter control variance-constrained controllers (i.e. output variance-constrained controllers) are useful.
