Abstract:

Analytical engineering methods are developed for use in predicting the static and dynamic stability and control derivatives and force and moment coefficients of lift-jet, lift-fan, and vectored thrust VSTOL aircraft in the hover and transition flight regimes. The aircraft configurations studies have a conventional wing, fuselage and empennage. The prediction methods are suitable for use by design personnel during the preliminary design and evaluation of VSTOL aircraft of the type previously mentioned. Details and listings of the computer programs associated with the prediction methods are given in the volume.
