Robust Aeroservoelastic Stability Analysis: Flight Test Applications (Advances in Industrial Control)

£16.99

Product description

This book introduces a new method of analysing aeroelasticity for flexible aircraft by applying robust stability theory. This method was developed to address several concerns with traditional methods and improve the efficiency of flight flutter testing. One advantage to this method is the ability to consider modelling errors in the analysis and generate a worst-case flutter margin. Another advantage is the ability to incorporate flight data directly into the analysis to ensure the model accounts for poorly modelled properties that are observed on the aircraft.

The material covered provides a detailed explanation of the method to analyse robust stability margins using μ-analysis. It shows how to formulate aeroelastic models in the μ framework using standard state-space concepts. It also presents several ways to represent modelling errors in this framework and discusses how these errors relate to typical errors in aeroelastic models. Algorithms are listed that demonstrate how to apply these robustness concepts to general aircraft models and compute worst-case stability margins.

Engineers working with flight test programs will be particularly interested in the material detailing methods of using flight data to update theoretical models and associated uncertainty descriptions. These methods represent a dramatic improvement over traditional analysis that separately analyse flight data and theoretical models. Incorporating the flight data presents the distinct benefit of ensuring the uncertainty description is a realistic representation of modelling errors so the worst-case stability margins are neither overly optimistic or conservative.

The top part of the rear free end paper has been torn off. Other than that, the book is in excellent condition throughout.
