Abstract : The 1987 NASA/Army Rotorcraft Technology Conference was held at Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, California, March 17-19, 1987. The Conference Proceedings is a compilation of over 30 technical papers presented at this milestone event which reported on the advances in rotorcraft technical knowledge resulting from NASA, Army, and industry rotorcraft research programs over the last 5 to 10 years. The Conference brought together over 230 government, industry, and allied nation conferees to exchange technical information and hear invited technical papers by prominent NASA, Army, and industry researchers covering technology topics including aerodynamics, dynamics and aeroelasticity, propulsion and drive systems, flight dynamics and control, acoustics, systems integration, and research aircraft.
