An analytical investigation was carried out for composite rotor blades with straight and swept tips to determine aeroelastic stability, response and loads in forward flight. Nonlinear equations were derived using Hamilton's principle. Composite blades with two-cell, soft-in-plane, hingeless configuration were analyzed. Results obtained from numerical calculations demonstrate the influence of composite ply orientation, tip sweep and anhedral on antrium, hub loads, blade response and stability.
