Airplane Flight Dynamics and Automatic Flight Controls – Jan Roskam – 1st Edition


Airplane Flight Dynamics & Automatic Flight Controls, Part I, provides comprehensive coverage of methods for analysis and synthesis of steady-state and disturbed-state (open-loop) stability and control of fixed-wing aircraft. This widely used book has been updated with modern flight quality criteria and aerodynamic data. Throughout this text, practical applications (design) of the theory are emphasized with many examples and illustrations.

The control and stability characteristics of aircraft are strictly regulated by both civil and military airworthiness authorities for safety reasons. The role of these safety standards in the application of the theory is therefore emphasized at all times. Airplane Flight Dynamics & Automatic Flight Controls, Part I is an essential reference for all aircraft engineers working in the area of stability and control, regardless of experience levels.

The book minimizes reader confusion through a systematic progression of the fundamentals: – General equations of steady and perturbed motion for a rigid airplane – Concepts and use of stability and control derivatives – Physical and mathematical explanations of stability derivatives and control – Solutions and applications of the Equations of Steady-State Motion from the point of view of aircraft analysis and emphasis on aircraft trim, takeoff rotation, and engine shutdown control – Open-loop transfer functions – Analysis of fundamental dynamic modes: phugoid, short period, roll, spiral and Dutch roll – Derivatives of equivalent stability and relationship with the automatic control of unstable aircraft – Flight qualities and the Cooper-Harper scale: civil and military regulations – Extensive numerical information on derivatives of stability, control and hinge moment
