Abstract: Unmanned aerial vehicles are widely used in military and civilian fields in recent years. Quadrotor Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) have high advantage among other UAV’s, in different categories, due to their ability to hover, and Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) capability. The mathematical simulation method can be adopted for analysis of UAV. The simulation method can reduce the flight period, cost and risk and improve its performance while Vertical take-off and landing (VTOL). While landing of UAV, the kinetic energy of vehicle is absorbed by UAV frame resulting in high stress concentration. The stresses are also produced in other parts of the UAV. The effect of the landing loads and stresses on the airframe of the quadrotor unmanned air vehicle must be completely understood and the UAV must be designed accordingly in order not to damage during landing.These stresses can be analyzed by simulation method to ensure the sustainability of UAV structure. This work includes structural and frequency analysis for Quadrotor UAV chassis.
Keywords: UAV, Quadcopters, VTOL, mathematical simulation ,flight dynamics, dynamic analysis, frequency analysis.
