Abstract:

Acellent Technologies, Inc. (Acellent) proposes to develop a Real time Auto Responsive System for Rotorcraft"s Fatigue Damage Alleviation, using Structural Health Monitoring and Component Usage Data. The proposed technology is primarily based on three strong expertises that the team (Acellent and Advanced Rotorcraft Technologies (ART)) brought in to this proposal. A) Acellent"s SMART Layer technology to detect and continuously monitor fatigue damages in rotorcraft components, B) Acellent"s Data fusion and statistical data interpretation capability C) ART"s Computational Fluid Dynamics(CFD)/Nonlinear Finite Element Model (FEM) for component response interpretation and feedback loop to the real time flight control for further damage alleviation. The proposed concept is one step ahead of current health and usage monitoring systems (HUMS) and Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) technology.
