Automatic Control of Atmospheric and Space Flight Vehicles: Design and Analysis with MATLAB(R) and Simulink(r) (Control Engineering)by Ashish Tewari
Synopses & Reviews
Automatic Control of Atmospheric and Space Flight Vehicles is perhaps the first book on the market to present a unified and straightforward study of the design and analysis of automatic control systems for both atmospheric and space flight vehicles. Covering basic control theory and design concepts, it is meant as a textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate students in modern courses on flight control systems.
The presentation is concise and easy to read, but does not sacrifice rigor. It includes abundant examples and exercises, with a particular focus on those that require programming. Meanwhile, the text makes extensive use of MATLAB /Simulink codes in the many solved examples for illustrating flight control design and analysis, giving the reader a hands-on experience with practical problems and making the book an even more useful and illuminating tool. For convenience, all the codes used are available for free download from the author's website.
In addition to the basics of flight control, this book covers a number of upper-level topics and will therefore be of interest not only to advanced students, but also to researchers and practitioners in aeronautical engineering.
