The high relative speed at which raindrops or solid particles can hit such rotor blades places extreme demands on the durability of the coatings, which is why polyurethane systems are usually chosen.
"This is an even bigger achievement for FRCE, using our printers to make polymer AM repair parts on H-53E main rotor blades that will enter the supply system and be used by the fleet."
It can be clearly observed that certain fluctuations occur in the signals originating from the complex scattering of the electromagnetic waves in the rotor blade. Doppler effects due to mechanical vibrations of the radar system or the rotor blade can be ignored due to the sub-second time scale.
To cover regions of high Reynolds number, the exit flow velocities from the vane or rotor blade correspond to the takeoff operating conditions.
The structural modal modules of ANSYS 14.0 are used for the analysis of the rotor blade. The rotor blade was analyzed for mechanical stress distribution of Radial, axial, Hoop & Von misses.
