Abstract

There are situations when the agricultural crops in the field are needed to be monitored because
when certain possible pest factors appear to be able to intervene in time without being affected the
production on the cultivated surface. It is about field crops cultivated on large surfaces where various
tracking or monitoring devices are needed to be used. These devices are unmanned aerial vehicles that
usually carry on board a high-resolution camera in order to achieve the proposed crops monitoring
objectives. This paper presents the assembly model of an unmanned aerial vehicle that can be used for
aerial surveillance of field crops set up on large land areas. A three-dimensional model of the helicopter
was built using the Solid Edge ST8 Academic software and analyzed with the ANSYS CFX program in
order to emphasize the operating parameters depending on the initially declared conditions. Also the
obtained results are presented from the computational fluid dynamics analysis conducted on the virtual
helicopter model.
