In this seminar, Dr. Juergen Rauleder from the Technical University of Munich will give an overview of the research being done in his rotorcraft aeromechanics group. Specifically, three topics of current interest are introduced and recent results being shown: A.) Combined computational/experimental analyses of the aeromechanics of high-speed, high-advance-ratio coaxial rotor systems, B.) Model development of a real-time- capable, coupled fluid dynamics/flight mechanics simulation in arbitrary (not known a priori) flow environments for pilot training in challenging operations such as landing on ship decks or oil rigs and flight in offshore wind farms, C.) CFD simulations and experiments on passive flow control at rotor blade tips to accelerate diffusion of the tip vortices for noise reduction and alleviation of detrimental induced and vibratory effects.

Short bio: Dr. Juergen Rauleder is heading the rotorcraft aeromechanics research group at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). Dr. Rauleder holds a Master’s degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Stuttgart, Germany, and a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering with a focus on rotorcraft aerodynamics from the University of Maryland, USA . He worked at the Alfred Gessow Rotorcraft Center at the University of Maryland as a visiting scholar and as a graduate research assistant in the rotorcraft aerodynamics laboratory of Prof. Gordon Leishman. Since 2014, Dr. Rauleder leads the rotorcraft aerodynamics and dynamics efforts at the Institute of Helicopter Technology at TUM , where he also teaches two Master’s classes in helicopter aerodynamics (fundamentals and advanced topics). His experimental and computational research interests are the applied rotor aerodynamics and dynamics with a focus on aeromechanical interactions, rotor wake and blade aerodynamics, and vortex flows. Dr. Rauleder is a member of the AIAA Applied Aerodynamics Committee and the Aerodynamics Committee of the American Helicopter Society.
