MAE 436LR Flight Dynamics


Reviews practical aerodynamics of wings and bodies, as well as performance of aircraft and missiles in the atmosphere. Topics include longitudinal, lateral, and directional static stability; control effectiveness; control forces; basic equations of motion of flight vehicles; aerodynamics, thrust and gravity forces; and stability derivatives. Analyzes aircraft and missile dynamic stability, as well as typical model responses to control inputs. Further studies autopilots, stability augmentation, and analysis of the pilot as a control-system element.
