A simulation of the helicopter/ship dynamic interface has been developed and applied to simulate a UH-60A operating from an LHA class ship. Time accurate CFD solutions of the LHA airwake are interfaced with a flight dynamics simulation based on the GENHEL model. The flight dynamics model was updated to include improved inflow modeling and gust penetration effects of the ship airwake. An optimal control model of a human pilot was used to simulate pilot control activity for a specified approach trajectory. The pilot model was designed so that the tracking performance could be tuned based on a desired crossover frequency in each control axis. The model was used to predict pilot workload for shipboard approaches in two different wind-over-deck conditions. Although further validation is needed, preliminary results show that the simulation results in similar workload trends as recent flight test studies.
