THE ESSENTIAL AIRCRAFT ANALYSIS REFERENCE, UPDATED WITH THE FIELD′S LATEST TECHNOLOGY

Aircraft Control and Simulation provides comprehensive, expert–led guidance to the topic, accessible to both students and professionals involved in the design and modeling of aerospace vehicles. Updated to include new coverage of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, this new third edition has been expanded throughout to cover the latest advances in the field.

The material progresses steadily from motion and aerodynamics equations through advanced control methods, using detailed real–world examples with model software details provided. Fundamental principles give way to dynamic analysis, stability evaluation, multivariable control, and more, including geodesy and the gravitational theory behind suborbital aircraft.

Special features in this updated edition include:

• Up–to–date coverage of flight control systems, flight dynamics, aircraft modeling, and flight simulation, based on both classical design and modern techniques
• Two new chapters that explore the modeling, simulation, and adaptive control of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
• Comprehensive control design and simulation examples, including relevant MATLAB calculations and FORTRAN code

Supplementary instructor materials ease this book into any aerospace curriculum, and the comprehensive coverage provides an excellent resource for students and professionals alike. Aircraft Control and Simulation is the essential reference for anyone involved in aerospace modeling and design.
