Excerpt: The Kawasaki OH-1 (nickname: "Ninja") is a light military reconnaissance helicopter for the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force, intended to replace the OH-6 Loach. As of March 31, 2009, 28 have entered service so far, complementing the existing fleet of 111 OH-6s. In the late 1980s, the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force developed a requirement for a new scout/observation helicopter to replace its Kawasaki license-built OH-6Ds, which became the OH-X programme. Proposals to meet the OH-X requirement were submitted by Kawasaki, Fuji and Mitsubishi, with the Kawasaki design selected as the winner (with Fuji and Mitsubishi serving as subcontractors) on 18 September 1992. The OH-1 is powered by two Mitsubishi TS1 turboshafts, driving a four-blade composite main rotor with a bearingless rotor hub, while a Fenestron-type rotor-in-tail fan is fitted instead of a more conventional Tail rotor. An electro-optical sensor turret is r...More: http: //booksllc.net/?id=194446

 

Helicopters

Stanley S. McGowen

2005-01-01 - ABC-CLIO

Helicopters: An Illustrated History of Their Impact covers the development of helicopters from the first successful machines in the early 1900s to their current status as a key component of combat planning around the world and as one of the military's most versatile and effective tools. Helicopters is a story of ongoing innovation in the face of stubborn resistance. Time and again, helicopter designers developed more capable rotorcraft and then had to lobby skeptical military planners to get them deployed. With expert analysis of all significant models, colorful portrayals of key figures in the evolution of helicopters, and vivid images of rotorcraft on the drawing board and in action, this revealing volume shows how an often denigrated machine became an essential military asset around the world, as well as an important tool in a number of areas, from police work to medical evacuation to farming.

Excerpt: The Mitsubishi H-60 series is twin-turboshaft engine helicopter based on the Sikorsky S-70 helicopter family for use by the Japan Self-Defense Force (JSDF). The SH-60J/K are anti-submarine patrol version for the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF). The UH-60J is a search and rescue version for the Japan Air Self-Defense Force (JASDF) and JMSDF. The UH-60JA is a utility version for the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force (JGSDF). The JMSDF chose SH-60B Seahawk as the successor of the Mitsubishi HSS-2A/B Sea King. The Japan Defense Agency acquired a S-70B-2 from Sikorsky for study in 1985. The Defense Agency was going to develop LAMPS Mk III for Japan, but it was declined by the United States, and most avionics sets were developed in the Technical Research and Development Institute. The Defense Agency ordered two XSH-60Js from Sikorsky for $27 million. Their first flights were on...

Fundamentals of Aircraft and Rocket Propulsion

Ahmed F. El-Sayed

2016-05-25 - Springer

This book provides a comprehensive basics-to-advanced course in an aero-thermal science vital to the design of engines for either type of craft. The text classifies engines powering aircraft and single/multi-stage rockets, and derives performance parameters for both from basic aerodynamics and thermodynamics laws. Each type of engine is analyzed for optimum performance goals, and mission-appropriate engines selection is explained. Fundamentals of Aircraft and Rocket Propulsion provides information about and analyses of: thermodynamic cycles of shaft engines (piston, turboprop, turboshaft and propfan); jet engines (pulsejet, pulse detonation engine, ramjet, scramjet, turbojet and turbofan); chemical and non-chemical rocket engines; conceptual design of modular rocket engines (combustor, nozzle and turbopumps); and conceptual design of different modules of aero-engines in their design and off-design state. Aimed at graduate and final-year undergraduate students, this textbook provides a thorough grounding in the history and classification of both aircraft and rocket engines, important design features of all the engines detailed, and particular consideration of special aircraft such as unmanned aerial and short/vertical takeoff and landing aircraft. End-of-chapter exercises make this a valuable student resource, and the provision of a downloadable solutions manual will be of further benefit for course instructors.

Excerpt: The Kawasaki Ki-61 Hien (, roughly "flying swallow") was a Japanese World War II fighter aircraft used by the Imperial Japanese Army Air Force. The first encounter reports claimed Ki-61s were Messerschmitt Bf 109s: further reports claimed that the new aircraft was an Italian design, which led to the Allied reporting name of "Tony," assigned by the United States War Department. The Japanese Army designation was "Army Type 3 Fighter" ( ). It was the only mass-produced Japanese fighter of the war to use a liquid-cooled inline V engine. Over 2.500 Ki-61s were produced, first seeing action around New Guinea in 1943, and continuing to fly combat missions throughout the war.

Chapters: Kawasaki aircraft, Boeing CH-47 Chinook, Boeing Vertol CH-46 Sea Knight, Kawasaki Ki-56, Kawasaki Ki-61, Lockheed P-2 Neptune, Eurocopter EC 145, Kawasaki Ki-100, Hughes OH-6 Cayuse, Kawasaki Ki-45, MBB/Kawasaki BK 117, Kawasaki Ki-48, Kawasaki Ki-60, Kawasaki P-1, Kawasaki Ki-32, Kawasaki C-2, Kawasaki P-2J, Kawasaki OH-1, Kawasaki Ki-96, Kawasaki Ki-102, Kawasaki C-1, Kawasaki Army Type 88 Reconnaisance Aircraft, Kawasaki Ki-28, Kawasaki Army Type 92 Model 1 Fighter, Kawasaki Ki-64, Kawasaki YPX, Kawasaki T-4, Kawasaki KH-4, Kawasaki Ka 87, Kawasaki KAQ-1. Excerpt: The Boeing CH-47 Chinook is a twin-engine, tandem rotor heavy-lift helicopter. Its top speed of 170 knots (196 mph, 315 km/h) was faster than contemporary utility and attack helicopters of the 1960s. It is one of the few aircraft of that era, such as the C-130 Hercules and the UH-1 Iroquois, that is still in production and front line service with over 1,179 built to date. Its primary roles include troop movement, artillery emplacement and battlefield resupply. It has a wide loading ramp at the rear of the fuselage and three external-cargo hooks. The Chinook was designed and initially produced by Boeing Vertol in the early 1960s. The helicopter is now produced by Boeing Rotorcraft Systems. Chinooks have been sold to 16 nations with the US Army and the Royal Air Force (see Boeing Chinook (UK variants)) being the largest users. The CH-47 is among the heaviest lifting Western helicopters. In late 1956, the Department of the Army announced plans to replace the CH-37 Mojave, which was powered by piston engines, with a new, turbine-powered helicopter. Turbine engines were also a key design feature of the smaller UH-1 "Huey" utility helicopter. Following a design competition, in September 1958, a joint Army-Air Force source selection board recommended that the ...
