Aircraft Dynamics: From Modeling to Simulation

by

Aircraft Dynamics: From Modeling to Simulation Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The 1st edition of Aircraft Dynamics: from Modeling to Simulation by Marcello R. Napolitano is an innovative textbook with specific features for assisting, motivating and engaging aeronautical/aerospace engineering students in the challenging task of understanding the basic principles of aircraft dynamics and the necessary skills for the modeling of the aerodynamic and thrust forces and moments. Additionally the textbook provides a detailed introduction to the development of simple but very effective simulation environments for today demanding students as well as professionals. The book contains an abundance of real life students sample problems and problems along with very useful Matlab codes.

Synopsis:

Napolitano's Aircraft Dynamics is designed to help readers extrapolate from low level formulas, equations, and details to high level comprehensive views of the main concepts. The text also helps readers with fundamental skills of learning the "basic modeling" of the aircraft aerodynamics and dynamics. The main objective is to organize the topics in "modular blocks" each of them leading to the understanding of the inner mechanisms of the aircraft aerodynamics and dynamics, eventually leading to the development of simple flight simulations schemes.
