Numerical simulation of a helicopter ditching with emergency flotation devices

Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) is used to model the ditching of a helicopter. Helicopters have a high centre of gravity, are not integrally watertight so tend to roll over and sink within seconds of landing on... read more
