Name: Institution: Course: Instructor: Date: Assignment 1: Advances in Flight Controls In order to reduce vibrations in a rotorcraft applications an advanced vibration reduction system such as Active Vibration Control Systems (AVCS) and Hub-Mounted Vibration Suppressors (HMVS) are fitted in an aircraft. They detect vibrational forces and counteracts them with another force (produced by specially built force generators) in the opposite direction to the vibrational force. The system reduces weight as it replaces passive-vibration absorbers it improves comfort and performance as well as reducing direct maintenance costs. However it is expensive to redesign an aircraft’s proposition. Two types of alignments i.e. rigging issues and controls system are always an issue that affects aircrafts performance. For example proper aircraft rigging necessitates special tools and jigs. In advanced flight controls coaxial blade system are aligned in a staked manner (one on top of the other). The two blades rotate in opposite through reducing human errors mechanical errors accuracies and precision they cannot replace human beings. Human beings should be provided with all necessary control information but the decision should be theirs. Furthermore they should have authority over the computerized system in case the system fails. Besides since computerized system rely on a pre-thought cases not all cases can be pre-meditated and programmed and hence the pilot should always be in command. References Ahern J. (2011).
