Helicopter Tail Rotor Driveshaft Design using Shape Memory Alloy (SMA)

Author(s) : Abhijeet Saxena, KSHITIJ GUPTA , Sahil Singh Malik
Abstract: This paper focuses on design alternatives of a helicopter tail rotor driveshaft utilizing shape memory alloy (SMA). The conventional tail rotor designs segment the complete shaft into multiple shafts due to its long length which would have low bending natural frequencies. Using multi-segmented shaft...     Read More
