A H Schmidt, S B Dyess: 1926. Tilt Rotor Wing Weight Estimation. 1990.



The wing of a tilt rotor aircraft has some design requirements which differ from that of conventional aircraft. The bending moment due to lifting the aircraft at the wing tips is larger than that of normal wing lift loads, and the natural frequency of the wing must be kept separated from the rotor one per rev. This paper presents a method, based on composite construction, for tilt rotor wing weight estimation.
