j2 Taking Centre Stage in the eVTOL Design, Development and Simulation Market

j2 Aircraft Dynamics Ltd previously announced the new v7 release of its Universal Tool-Kit and its impact on the growing eVTOL application areas. The rise in projects focused on unconventional aircraft designs supporting the interest in the eVTOL market is growing at a fast pace. The unconventional designs also bring with them a host of technical challenges. These include:

  • The distribution of mass and its impact on inertias throughout all phases of flight.
  • The impact of multi rotor vortices and their interactions especially in downwash and up-wash dynamics and downwash ingestion.
  • The flight control system logic that is able to model pilot control inputs and the corresponding response of the motors, rotors, and aircraft.
  • Better understand the aircraft responses, rate demands and rates of change and their impact on pilot induced oscillations (PIO’s), resulting in a potential loss of control (LoC).
  • Failure modes, recovery strategies and outcomes
  • Being able to demonstrate tangible and measurable progress and improvement in the safe operation of the aircraft to stake holders and investors.

J2 Universal Tool-Kit is fully engaged within the eVTOL design industry and the latest version v7 opens up even more capability supporting the identification and evaluation of design and control solutions to the challenges summarised above.

The current race to test flying seems to mirror the Wright brothers experience i.e. that actual test flying is the only way forwards.

With the rapid developments in digital twin technology and j2’s own capabilities in this area, the creation of digital twins and the ability to then fly the aircraft within the software, is already commercial reality. j2 commercially offers the capability to do this off line, faster than in real time, with no risk of loss and is able to evaluate any and all manoeuvres including the impact of environmental disturbances on core stability and control.
