- The results are presented of a test program and analysis to investigate the effects of inplane hub support parameters on the oscillatory chordwise loads of a two-bladed teetering rotor. The test program was conducted in two phases. The first consisted of a shake test to define the impedance of a number of test configurations as a function of frequency. The second phase was the test of these configurations in the NASA-Langley transonic dynamics tunnel. The test showed that the one-per-rev inplane bending moments could be changed by a factor of 2.0 as a function of the pylon configuration at the same aerodynamic operating condition. The higher harmonic inplane, flapwise, and torsional bending moments, and pitch link axial loads were not affected by changes in inplane hub impedance. The maximum inplane loads occurred for the pylon configuration with the minimum spring rate and maximum inertia.
