Scope: The 2018 AHS Technical Meeting on Aeromechanics Design for Transformative Vertical Flight, taking place Jan. 16–18, provides a forum to discuss newly emerging aeromechanics challenges of transformative vertical lift vehicle concepts and configurations, and how they influence design methodologies and decisions. Aeromechanics encompasses the technical disciplines of dynamics, aerodynamics, acoustics and flight mechanics, all of which are strong drivers in the design process. The conference is being held in conjunction with the 5th Annual Transformative Vertical Flight Workshop on Jan. 18–19. The conference will feature technical paper presentation on aeromechanics related to transformative vertical flight, while the workshop will feature invited presentations, panel sessions and discussions on the subject, with a focus on urban air mobility.
