Abstract
Advanced rotor systems including hingeless and bearingless rotors have air and ground resonance instabilities due to coalescence of low-frequency rotor modes with landing gear and fuselage modes, respectively. This coalescence is of difficulty due to the direct connection of the rotor blade in these advanced rotor systems to the rotor hub using a flexure or flexbeam. We are currently exploring the mitigation of this modal coalescence through the use of active damping techniques and electro-rheological fluid technology.
