Abstract:

Large-disturbance equations of airplane motion suitable for use with modern digital or analog computers are derived from the general equations of rigid-body motion. The procedure followed is to find solutions in each case for the steady-flight conditions about which the desired motions present perturbations. The variables of motion are expanded to include these steady- flight values, and the steady-flight solutions are applied in order to eliminate the steady-flight forces and moments.
