We are happy to introduce the new scientific book written by Jiří Čečrdle, senior scientist at the VZLU. The publication entitled "Whirl flutter of turboprop aircraft structures" was issued by the Dutch publisher Elsevier Science at the beginning of 2015.
Whirl flutter is the aeroelastic phenomenon caused by the coupling of aircraft propeller aerodynamic forces and the gyroscopic forces of the rotating masses (propeller, gas turbine engine rotor). It may occur on the turboprop, tilt-prop-rotor or rotorcraft aircraft structures. Whirl Flutter of Turboprop Aircraft Structures explores the whirl flutter phenomenon, including theoretical and practical as well as analytical and experimental aspects of the matter.
