The book will be suitable for anyone in the industry or academia who has to function at a high technical level.

In particular, I recommend it highly to those of us who are not aerodynamicists per se, but need to be increasingly well informed on aerodynamic matters This book is an excellent addition to a reference library. Synopsis This text provides a thorough, modern treatment of the aerodynamic principles of helicopters and other rotating-wing vertical lift aircraft. It covers basic topics of aerodynamic analysis, helicopter performance and design, and advanced topics, including airfoil flows and unsteady aerodynamics.

Every chapter includes numerous illustrations, a bibliography, and homework problems. Synopsis Helicopters are highly capable rotating-wing aircraft with the unique ability to take off and land vertically, to hover, and to fly forward, backward, or sideways.

This book provides a thorough, modern treatment of the aerodynamic principles of helicopters and other rotating-wing vertical lift aircraft. It covers the basics of aerodynamic analysis, helicopter performance and design, and advanced topics, including airfoil flows and unsteady aerodynamics.

Advanced undergraduate and graduate students, practising engineers, and researchers, will welcome this useful text. Synopsis A thorough, modern text on the aerodynamic principles of helicopters and other rotating-wing vertical lift aircraft. Synopsis An internationally recognized expert explains the aerodynamic principles of helicopters and other rotating-wing vertical lift aircraft.

Besides the history of helicopter flight, basic methods of analysis, and performance and design issues, Leishman covers airfoil flows, unsteady aerodynamics, dynamic stall, and rotor wakes. Each chapter includes homework problems. About the Author J. He is a former aerodynamicist at Westland Helicopters and has written extensively on topics in helicopter aerodynamics.

Simon Newman has brought this third edition completely up to date with a full new set of illustrations and imagery. An accompanying website www. Simon Newman addresses the unique considerations applicable to rotor UAVs and MAVs, and coverage of blade dynamics is expanded to include both flapping, lagging and ground resonance. New material is included on blade tip design, flow characteristics surrounding the rotor in forward flight, tail rotors, brown-out, blade sailing and shipborne operations. Concentrating on the well-known Sikorsky configuration of single main rotor with tail rotor, early chapters deal with the aerodynamics of the rotor in hover, vertical flight, forward flight and climb.
