TRANSPORT TECHNICS. INVESTIGATION OF ELEMENTS. RELIABILITY
A new design of Mi-8/Mi-17 helicopter’s main reducer with a higher technical level and built on the basis of the kinematic scheme of the three—stage double-flow reducer AN is being considered. At the same time the requirements for the reducer to be multi-flow and to have the required kinematic parameters at all of its output shafts for driving the main and tail rotors and all the auxiliary units are being observed.
