AVM 216 - Aircraft Propulsion Drive Systems

Credits: 3

A detailed study of aircraft propulsion drive systems that convert engine power to thrust necessary for sustained flight. Drive systems include propellers, unducted fans (open rotor), and rotor-blades found on small, medium, and large fixed, and rotary-wing aircraft. Emphasis on fixed and controllable-pitch propellers applications as well as rotor-blades, and rotor-hubs assemblies found on helicopters. Topics include theory of operation, dynamic and static balancing, vibration analysis, design characteristics, materials, and maintenance practices. Students practice inspection, servicing, balance, maintenance and repair of propeller and rotor systems.

Three hours lecture and four hours lab a week.
