Abstract:

The program provides a complete simulation of the aircraft takeoff and landing problem. Effects simulated in the program include aircraft control and performance during glide slope, flare, landing roll, and takeoff roll, all under conditions of changing winds, engine failures, brake failures, control system failures, strut failures, runway length and control variable limits, and time lags landing gear loads and dynamics for aircraft with up to five gears multiple engine aircraft engine reversing drag chute and spoiler effects braking aerodynamic ground effect takeoff from aircraft carriers and inclined runways and runway perturbations. The program is modular so that glide slope, flare, landing, and takeoff can be studied separately or in combination.
