Abstract:

The modeling of the human pilot behavior plays an important role in the preliminary analysis of aircraft handling qualities. This is especially true when the designer is confronted with non-conventional aircraft dynamics, tasks andor lack of sufficient handling qualities data-base. The present paper reviews one modeling technique which was developed in the early 1970s and has been widely used since then the optimal control model of the human pilot OCM. The model has been validated in a number of tasks and used in the analysis as well as the synthesis of manual control loops. The capabilities of the model are evaluated in the pilot rating PR prediction, in the analysis and in the synthesis of pilotvehicle control loops from the handling qualities standpoint. SDW
