Abstract:

In this work there has been investigated the influence of stiffness and damping in the system of control guidance by ailerons while taking into consideration the elastic deformation of the wings on the lateral stability of the aircraft as well as the vibrations of the ailerons. The aircraft has been treated as a rigid mechanical system with elastically deformable wings and movable ailerons. The equations of motion have been worked out in quasi-coordinates using the Boltzmann-Hamel equations for mechanical systems with holonomic constraints in a system of coordinates connected with the aircraft.
