Flight mechanics is the application of Newton's laws to the study of vehicle trajectories (performance), stability, and aerodynamic control. This volume details the derivation of analytical solutions of airplane flight mechanics problems associated with flight in a vertical plane. It covers trajectory analysis, stability, and control. In addition, the volume presents algorithms for calculating lift, drag, pitching moment, and stability derivatives. Throughout, a subsonic business jet is used as an example for the calculations presented in the book.…mehr

Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"The text under review addresses performance, stability, and control (static and dynamic) characteristics of aircraft from the viewpoint, according to the author, of a one semester, junior-level course on these topics. ... It is readable, at an appropriate level for undergraduates ... . It is also a good choice to help a more experienced person to come up to speed on basic flight mechanics. I certainly recommend it for these situations." (Keith Koenig, SIAM Review, Vol. 49 (4), 2007)

"There are two basic problems in airplane mechanics: (1) given an airplane, what are its performance, stability and control characteristics? and (2) given performance, stability and control characteristics, what is the airplane? The book is concerned with the first problem, but its organization is motivated by the structure of the second problem. ... The book is not only a very good educational tool, but also a competent research exposition monograph, and it is recommended to students and researchers in flight mechanics." (Adrian Carabineanu, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1126 (3), 2008)
