Abstract : This AGARDograph contains eight papers presented at the 24th AGARD Flight Mechanics Panel Meeting, Ames Research Center, California, USA, in February 1964. Three major aspects of simulation are dealt with. First, the electro-mechanical-optical systems forming the simulation hardware and the associated computing facilities; second, examples of simulation research applied to aircraft problems; and, third, examples of simulation research applied to spacecraft problems. A discussion of the simulation research problem from a human engineering standpoint precedes the hardware, aircraft and spacecraft sections. (Author)
