Title: ANTI-TORQUE AFT-MOUNTING SYSTEMS, DEVICES, AND METHODS FOR TURBOPROP/TURBOSHAFT ENGINES
Abstract:
Aft-mounting systems, devices, and methods for turboprop and turboshaft engines include two or more coupling elements 201, 211, 221 that are configured to couple an aft portion of an engine of an aircraft to a support structure of the aircraft. The two or more coupling elements are together configured to react forces generated in a vertical direction and in a lateral direction transverse to the engine but allow substantially unrestricted rotation of the engine with respect to the support structure about an axis of rotation of the engine.
