FE Helicopter Script
I'm wondering if there is a FE Helicopter script I could use so I could just use the script in a game and look cool. I know that there is Nullware Re-Animate but I don't know how to use the script to make my own FE Animations. If one of you actually makes your own FE Helicopter, you are a legend. I'm just a basic scripter so I don't know that much. (here is an image on how i want it to look)
FE Helicopter Script
On July 23, 1982, a Bell UH-1 Iroquois helicopter crashed at Indian Dunes in Valencia, California, United States, during the making of Twilight Zone: The Movie. The crash killed actor Vic Morrow and child actors Myca Dinh Le and Renee Shin-Yi Chen, who were on the ground, and injured the six helicopter passengers. The incident led to years of civil and criminal action against the personnel overseeing the shoot, including director John Landis, and the introduction of new procedures and safety standards in the filmmaking industry.
Twilight Zone: The Movie featured four segments. In the script for the first segment, "Time Out", character Bill Connor (Vic Morrow) is transported back in time to the Vietnam War, where he has become a Vietnamese man protecting two children from American troops.
The children were hired after Peter Wei-Teh Chen, Renee's uncle, was approached by a colleague whose wife was a production secretary for the film. Chen first thought of his brother's six-year-old daughter Renee, whose parents agreed to let her participate. He then called a Vietnamese colleague, Daniel Le, who had a seven-year-old son named Myca. Myca was an outgoing boy who enjoyed posing for pictures, so his parents thought he would be interested. Chen later testified that he was never informed that either of the children would be in proximity to a helicopter or explosives.
The night scene called for Morrow's character to carry the two children out of a deserted village and across a shallow river while being pursued by American soldiers in a hovering helicopter. The helicopter was piloted by Vietnam War veteran Dorcey Wingo. During the filming, Wingo stationed his helicopter 25 ft (7.6 m) from the ground, while hovering near a large mortar effect; he then turned the aircraft 180 degrees to the left for the next camera shot. The effect was detonated while the helicopter's tail-rotor was still above it, causing the rotor to fail and detach from the tail. The low-flying helicopter spun out of control. At the same time, Morrow dropped Chen into the water. He was reaching out to grab her when the helicopter fell on top of him and the two children. Morrow and Le were decapitated by the helicopter's main rotor blades, while Chen was crushed to death by the helicopter's right landing skid; all three died almost instantly.
At the trial, the defense claimed that the explosions were detonated at the wrong time. Randall Robinson, an assistant cameraman on board the helicopter, testified that production manager Dan Allingham told Wingo, "That's too much. Let's get out of here," when the explosions were detonated, but Landis shouted over the radio: "Get lower... lower! Get over [lower]!" Robinson said that Wingo tried to leave the area, but that "we lost our control and regained it and then I could feel something let go and we began spinning around in circles." Stephen Lydecker, another camera operator on board, testified that Landis had earlier "shrugged off" warnings about the stunt with the comment, "We may lose the helicopter." Lydecker acknowledged that Landis might have been joking when he made the remark, but added, "I learned not to take anything the man said as a joke. It was his attitude. He didn't have time for suggestions from anybody."
In October 1984, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) issued its report on the accident. The probable cause of the accident was the detonation of debris-laden high temperature special effects explosions too near to a low-flying helicopter, leading to foreign object damage to one rotor blade and delamination due to heat to the other rotor blade, the separation of the helicopter's tail rotor assembly, and the uncontrolled descent of the helicopter. The proximity of the helicopter to the special effects explosions was due to the failure to establish direct communications and coordination between the pilot, who was in command of the helicopter operation, and the film director, who was in charge of the filming operation.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) had just instituted regulations the previous March to define how aircraft were to be regulated during film and television productions. The new regulations, however, only covered fixed-wing aircraft and not helicopters. As a result of the fatal accident, the NTSB recommended that the terms be extended to apply to all types of aircraft. In response, the FAA "amend[ed] Order 8440.5A, Chapter 14, Section 5 to clarify and emphasize that helicopter low-level movie making operations do require a certificate of waiver"; this language was officially incorporated in 1986.
The accident led to civil and criminal action against the filmmakers which lasted nearly a decade. Le's father, Daniel Lee, testified that he heard Landis instructing the helicopter to fly lower. All four parents testified that they were never told that there would be helicopters or explosives on set, and they had been reassured that there would be no danger, only noise. Lee, who had survived the Vietnam War and immigrated with his wife to the United States, was horrified when the explosions began on the Vietnamese village set, bringing back memories of the war.
Landis, Folsey, Wingo, production manager Allingham, and explosives specialist Paul Stewart were tried and acquitted on charges of manslaughter in a nine-month trial in 1986 and 1987. In the course of cross-examination, Wingo expressed his regret that Morrow had not looked "up at the helicopter" as he claimed he had instructed him to do, stating when questioned that Morrow "had over five seconds between the time that the sound of the helicopter changed and that impact", but later clarifying that he was not attempting to place blame. Wingo's comments were roundly derided, including by the prosecutor, Deputy District Attorney Lea Purwin D'Agostino, who during cross-examination had responded to Wingo's suggestion that Morrow could have evaded the helicopter by questioning how exactly Wingo expected him to have done so, observing that "Morrow was carrying the two youngsters in his arms while standing almost knee-deep in water as the helicopter, which had been hovering at 24 feet, spun toward him" and calling the testimony "quite amazing" and questioning how Wingo could "possibly have thought that Vic Morrow could have done anything to escape that helicopter under those circumstances and conditions? It's a classic example of a defense. They're blaming the parents, they're blaming the fire safety officers, they're out here blaming everyone. Now they're blaming the dead man. It's incredible." Morrow's family settled within a year; the children's families collected millions of dollars from several civil lawsuits.
Baldwin filed a lawsuit over the fatal shooting, alleging negligence of several of the film's crew members. The cross-complaint, which named the Western's first assistant director, armorer, ammunitions supplier and prop master as defendants, follows the lawsuit filed last year by the film's script supervisor.
Abstract:In the present study, a three-dimensional finite element framework has been developed to model a full-scale multilaminate composite helicopter rotor blade. Tip deformation and stress behavior have been analyzed for external aerodynamic loading conditions and compared with the Abaqus FEA model. Furthermore, different parametric studies of geometric design parameters of composite laminates are studied in order to minimize tip deformation and maximize the overall efficiency of the helicopter blade. It is found that these parameters significantly influence the tip deformation characteristic and can be judiciously chosen for the efficient design of the rotor blade system.Keywords: composite helicopter blade; composite modeling; finite element method
The helicopter rotor blade is an element which can be successfully adapted to parametric design, because of mathematical functions which precisely describe blade features. The parametric model is the first step to prepare the main rotor optimization process . Some examples have been shown in different works: parametric airfoil design [5,6,7], structural design [8,9], and aerodynamic design . A good parametric analysis of the rotor blade framework is presented in . In this research, the parametric model was prepared using GRIP modeling language, which is an integral part of the Siemens NX environment. The usage of GRIP in parametric modeling was conducted in [12,13,14].
This work is part of a research program that is aimed at finding the best rotorcraft construction optimization solutions. The first step of the research program was an analysis of modern helicopter constructions and an outline of design parameters that are crucial in helicopter main rotor design. The results of the analysis showed that there is a field were rotor construction can be improved in accordance with modern combat field requirements which are dynamically changing due to fast technological improvements. The results, with charts and a comparison of parameters were published in . 041b061a72
