Article Preview

Based on a laminated composite structure, vibration and nonlinear stall aeroelastic stability of rotor blades modeled as anisotropic thin-walled closed-section beams are systematically addressed. The analysis is applied to a laminated construction of the circumferentially asymmetric stiffness (CAS) that produces bending-bending-twist coupling. The vibration characteristics of composite beam are determined by the Galerkin Method. The unsteady aerodynamic loads and centrifugal force are integrated with the nolinear aerodynamic model to deal with aeroelastic stability analysis. The influence of some related factors, pretwisted angle, ply-angle rotational speed, and wind speed, is investigated. The paper gives methods of eigenvalue analysis and aeroelastic response, which can determine the stability of the blade forced by the nolinear aerodynamics.
