Application of Contact Analysis in Strength Analysis of Helicopter Transmission System
Taking the strength analysis of the tail rotor transmission system for one type helicopter as an example, the implicit nonlinear finite element contact analysis was taken to the control arms and flange of the tail rotor pitch control system using MSN/NASTRAN in this paper. It was pointed out that rightly modeling the actual load and boundary conditions of components is essential in the strength analysis of the transmission system.
