Abstract:

The book treats the dynamics of atmospheric flight, with special reference to the stability and control of airplanes. An extensive set of numerical examples covers STOL airplane, subsonic jet transport, hypersonic airplane, stability augmentation, and wind and density gradients. The book completely covers equations of motion, including effects of round rotating Earth and distortional motion. There are complete chapters on human pilots and handling qualities and flight in turbulence, with numerical examples for a jet transport. Small-perturbation equations for longitudinal and lateral motion are presented in convenient matrix forms, both in time domain and Laplace transforms, dimensional and non-dimensional. Author
