AE 172: Flight Dynamics and Control

Units: 3

Introduces flight dynamics, modeling and fundamental stability and control aspects of aircraft. Covers aircraft roll, pitch and yaw static stability and control basics and develops the full nonlinear equations of motion. The concept of numerical simulation of these equations is also introduced. Finally, with the dynamic models in-hand, open-loop response to actuation of the control systems is analyzed and the concept of closed-loop aircraft control system design is presented.
