      "Vibrations of rotary-wing aircraft may derive their energy from the rotation of the rotor rather than from the air forces. A theoretical analysis of these vibrations is described and methods for its application are explained herein" (p. 1). Information about self-excited speed range and shaft-critical speed are provided for any rotor with more than two by: harmonic drive operation can be found in [2], [3]. Construction of harmonic drives with gear meshing at two diametrically opposite ends improves the contact ra-tio of gear teeth by at least twice that of conventional transmissions. Because of this harmonic drives have higher gear reduction, lower (almost zero) backlash and higher. Here are some Record rainfalls How often are weather records broken?

COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle.

To alleviate these drawbacks of helicopters, active rotor control technologies have been investigated for a long time. Many different approaches have been investigated and most of them are not being followed any more.

First investigations started with so-called Higher Harmonic Control (HHC) which has been replaced by Individual Blade Control (IBC).Cited by: the rotor swashplate to actively control vibration in this way is generally referred to as higher harmonic control (HHC).

However, it is clear that HHC systems for vibration reduction can also utilize airframe control surfaces such as flaps, ailerons, elevators, and rudders, airframe-mounted devices such as seismic masses andFile Size: 88KB.

Higher harmonic control (HHC) is one of the several active control concepts that have the goal of reducing helicopter vibration.

The rigid rotor system shown in Figure is mechanically simple, but structurally complex because operating loads must be absorbed in bending rather than through hinges.

The first active rotor approach, tested in the s (Warnicke and Drees) on a 2-bladed UH-1 relied upon oscillating the existing main rotor blades through the rotor control system; a method known as Higher Harmonic Control (HHC).
