where [[delta].sub.t] is tilt-rotor deflection and [f.sub.i] is ith rotor force (i = 1,...,4).
Since the equilibrium state which will be used as the initial condition is very important for gust analysis, steady rotor forces and moments are used to update the vehicle equilibrium equations at each step of iterative trim solution [25, 26].
One such rotor forces each strand or film tail into the valley of its corrugated rotor, where a nip cutter ensures it does not wrap more than 180[degrees].
