Dynamics of Atmospheric Flight (Dover Books on Engineering)

by

Dynamics of Atmospheric Flight (Dover Books on Engineering) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Geared toward upper-level undergrads, graduate students, and practicing engineers, this comprehensive treatment of the dynamics of atmospheric flight focuses especially on the stability and control of airplanes. An extensive set of numerical examples covers STOL airplanes, subsonic jet transports, hypersonic flight, stability augmentation, and wind and density gradients.

The equations of motion receive a very full treatment, including the effects of the curvature and rotation of the Earth and distortional motion. Complete chapters are given to human pilots and handling qualities and to flight in turbulence, with numerical examples for a jet transport. Small-perturbation equations for longitudinal and lateral motion appear in convenient matrix forms, both in time-domain and Laplace transforms, dimensional and nondimensional.

Synopsis:

This treatment for upper-level undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals makes special reference to stability and control of airplanes, with extensive numerical examples covering a variety of vehicles. 260 illustrations. 1972 edition.
