|Title:||Investigation and fabrication of tiltrotors/tiltwings with morphing wing mechanisms||Authors:||Hon, Shah Kiat.||Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering::Aeronautical engineering||Issue Date:||2011||Abstract:||This report included a historical study of tiltrotor/tiltwing developments and reviewed current developments in morphing aircrafts and V/STOL aircrafts. In order to provide a platform for researches and test-bedding of different technologies, a prototype was designed with low cost and ease of manufacturing in mind. Detailed fabrications processes were planned and a prototype unmanned aerial vehicle was built to study the feasibility of combining the versatility of convertibles and morphing mechanisms. In addition, experiments and theoretical studies were done on rotor/propellers because of their essential roles in making a functional convertible aircraft. At the end of the project, the prototype was tested on a testing rig to study its dynamic responses and ability to hover.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/46027||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
