Description

Modeling Flight Dynamics with Tensors course. Tensor flight dynamics modeling course. Join me and take your knowledge of tensor flight dynamics to the next level. After some historical background and definitions, tensor algebra lays the foundation for the tensor treatment of flight dynamics, along with two kinematic pillars, namely the rotational time derivative and the Euler transform. Newton’s second law, which is expressed as a constant tensor independent of the coordinate system, creates the equations of motion of three, five and six degrees of freedom. Euler’s law provides the equations of motion and insight into the peculiar gyrodynamic behavior experienced by pilots flying single-engine airplanes. While the introductory treatment of tensor flight dynamics starts with rigid bodies, here, at an advanced level, I apply the dynamical laws to particles first and then combine them to form rigid bodies. My perturbation technique is of great importance to engineers as it leads to linear equations of state. This tensor approach enables the formulation of the perturbation equations of motion not only for steady flight, but also for unsteady reference flight. And the expansion of aerodynamic derivatives to higher orders provides the possibility of treating nonlinear aerodynamic phenomena. Practice is completed by solving three problems after each lecture. Detailed solutions are included for verification and to help. The content of this course is based on my graduation lectures at the University of Florida over 15 years.
