Aviation Blade Services (ABS) is best known for its expertise in the UH-60 Blackhawk rotor blade, as well as the Sikorsky, S-55, S-58, S-61, S-62, S-64, S-70, H-3, H-34, and CH-54 rotor blades, and Westland Sea King rotor blades.
This applies in particular to the coating of rotor blades, which are exposed to a variety of stresses, such as UV radiation and erosion.
Paying the OEM to overhaul the main rotor blade would have cost about $210,000 per blade, Peedin said.
There is also evidence that a main rotor blade has struck and entered the cabin in flight.
The different time periods can be explained by a different speed of rotation and the corresponding time differences of the rotor blade in the radar beam.
The boundary conditions, summarized in Table 2, include the total pressure and temperature (takeoff operating conditions [17]) imposed at the inlet of NGV, while downstream of the rotor blade, a static pressure was varied to sweep the totality of the mass flow rate for different rotational speeds.
Rotos360 provides solutions in the inspection, repair and reconditioning of wind farm rotor blades, primarily in the offshore environment and was established in 2013 as part of a UK government funded research project to reduce the cost of operation and maintenance of offshore wind turbines.

A wind turbine rotor blade is the fundamental component of a wind turbine.
His topics include the historical development of helicopters, a simple model for rotor blade flapping motion, helicopter trim (or equilibrium) analysis, the coupled mode dynamics of rotor blade aeroelastic stability, helicopter stability and control, and a simple model of ground resonance--aeromechanical instability.
Nordex is planning to invest up to EUR 50 million for improving its rotor blade capabilities.
Mechanical and chemical engineers describe developments in the engineering of rotor blades for a wind turbine, evaluate the challenges in rotor blade design, and discuss the requirements and challenges for the composite material to be used in the wind turbine blades of the future.
"For this reason, our paints are designed both to provide efficient coating and to fully protect the rotor blade surface from the enormous environmental stresses." At speeds of up to 300 kilometers per hour at the blade tips, rain, snow and hail attack the surfaces, which can lead to erosion.
