QUESTION
I’m a stress eng. with approx. 1 year experience but only on fixed wing AC. Since I have a new job, where we produce some rotorcraft UAV’s, I have to do stress calculations of each part of the rotorcraft. Unfortunately I couldn’t find any literature dealing with the topics of stress calc. of rotorcraft components like Niu etc. since it is more complex due to vibrations and dynamical behavior of the AC. Can anyone give me some information or hint, where I can find related literature for self-study?
