Summary and Info
Since the original publication of Helicopter Dynamics by A.R.S. Bramwell in 1976, this book has become the definitive text on helicopter dynamics. As such it is an essential aid to those studying the behavior of helicopters. The second edition builds on the strengths of the original, and hence the approach of the first edition is retained. The authors provide a detailed summary of helicopter aerodynamics, stability, control, structural dynamics, vibration, and aeroelastic and aeromechanical stability. Bramwell's Helicopter Dynamics is essential for all those in helicopter engineering, whether student or professional.
