Abstract:

A MET O FOR DEVELOPING COOR INATE-TRANSFORMATION EQUATIONS FOR A MULTIPLE-DEGREE-OF-FREEDOM FLIGHT SIMUL TOR IS PRESENTED. The equations are applicable in particular to A five-degree-of freedom piloted flight simulator in general ho v r the method of their d velopme isAPPLIABLE TO TRANSFOR ATION EQUA ION FOR OTHER, SIMILAR IMULATORS OF FEWER OR OF MORE DEGR ES OF FR EDOM. Because of the A simulator has a very limited r nge of displacement in one of its modes of motio the qu tions re writ en for four degree of freedom. E XAMI ATION OF THE SINGUL RITIES OF THE E UATIONS SHOWED IT PO IBLE TO R PRODUCE ANY COMBINATIO OF FOUR OF THE SIX COMPONENTS OF MOTION, T REE ANGULAR AND THRE LINEAR, OF THE VEHICLE BEI G SIMULATED. In most ca es, there is ore han one way to simulate each combin ion t most desirable way determined by the restriction imposed by the singularities of the equations. Author
