Friendcopter - Environmentally Friendly Helicopter

Contract Number AIP3-CT-2003-502773

European Research Project.

The research contribution from "Dipartimento di Ingegneria Aerospaziale" of "Politecnico di Milano" focuses on interior noise (WP4) and smart blades (WP5). MBDyn is used in the design and optimization of actively twisted rotor blades and in the aeroservoelastic simulation of rotorcraft dynamics for performance improvement and vibrations reduction.
The activity is currently focusing on the optimization of the active twist blade section properties.

Points of contact are Professor Gian Luca Ghiringhelli (POLIMI coordinator); Dr. Pierangelo Masarati and Dr. Marco Morandini for smart blade optimization.
