Abstract:

A static method is given for ascertaining stability derivative from the results of flight tests. The theory of the methods used, the so-called regression analysis is traced in detail. The necessary modifications are also reported with respect to practical performance and the computer program is explained in its basic outlines. In conclusion, discussion is entered into with relation to the experiments thus far collected with this evaluation method. Report is first made concerning the tests with the measured values from the flight simulator and finally report is made on the first experiments with results of actual flight tests from the Do 31 flight investigation.
