NICETRIP - Novel Innovative Competitive Effective Tilt Rotor Integrated Project
Contract Number 030944
6th FP European Research Project.
The research contribution
from "Dipartimento di Ingegneria Aerospaziale"
of "Politecnico di Milano"
spans the entire project, from numerical analysis of aerodynamics,
flight mechanics, aeroelasticity, structural dynamics,
to wind-tunnel testing.
MBDyn is used in the aeroservoelastic and structural dynamics analysis
of up to the full-span tiltrotor.
Current POLIMI tasks involve:
- investigation of model nonlinearity issues in whirl-flutter stability and limit-cycle oscillations (LCO);
- aeroelastic stability of the rotor;
- preliminary aeroelastic sizing of the tail;
- overall aircraft aeroservoelasticity and structural dynamics.
MBDyn semispan model of the ERICA concept
The sizing of the tail is performed
by Luca Cavagna
and Giuseppe Quaranta
using NeoCASS, a tool developed by POLIMI
within the SimSAC project.
Professor Sergio Ricci is POLIMI's coordinator of SimSAC.
NeoCASS conceptual model of the ERICA concept
Points of contact are Professor Marco Borri (POLIMI coordinator);
Dr. Pierangelo Masarati (responsible for dynamics related tasks)
and Dr. Giuseppe Quaranta,
for aeroservoelasticity and structural dynamics.
