Abstract

This report discusses the mathematical models and the specialised simulation techniques developed for an investigation of helicopter offshore operations under adverse conditions. The development of a mathematical model of a torque limited, twin engine power plant capable of accommodating multiple or single gas turbine failures is presented. In order to simulate engine failures during the critical phases of takeoff or landing manoeuvres, a novel hybrid simulation technique called HIFIS which incorporates both inverse and forward methods has been developed. Its formulation and the subsequent specialised recovery trajectories that it requires are detailed.
