Research and Markets: Aircraft Dynamics: From Modeling to Simulation

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/24d418/aircraft_dynamics) has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new book "Aircraft Dynamics: From Modeling to Simulation" to their offering.

The 1st edition of Aircraft Dynamics: from Modeling to Simulation by Marcello R. Napolitano is an innovative textbook with specific features for assisting, motivating and engaging aeronautical/aerospace engineering students in the challenging task of understanding the basic principles of aircraft dynamics and the necessary skills for the modeling of the aerodynamic and thrust forces and moments. Additionally the textbook provides a detailed introduction to the development of simple but very effective simulation environments for today demanding students as well as professionals. The book contains an abundance of real life students sample problems and problems along with very useful Matlab codes


  • Strong emphasis on high level synthesis following detailed description of the key concepts of the discipline (aircraft equations of motion, modeling of aerodynamic forces and moments, and solution of the aircraft dynamics).
  • Critical chapter dedicated to the critical skills of developing a Matlab/Simulink based simulation environment for realistic aircraft dynamic simulations.
  • Powerful one-of-a-kind database (Appendix C) of detailed CAD drawings for 25 aircraft - representing virtually all the classes of aircraft - along with all the associated geometric data ideal for estimating all the aerodynamic coefficients.

Key Topics Covered:

  • Aircraft Equations of Motion
  • Review of Basic Concepts of Aerodynamic Modeling
  • Modeling of Longitudinal Aerodynamic Forces and Moments
  • Modeling of Lateral Directional Aerodynamic Forces and Moments
  • Review of Basic Aircraft Performance and Modeling of Thrust Forces and Moments
  • Aircraft Stability and Design for Trim Conditions
  • Solution of the Aircraft Equations of Motion Based on Laplace Transformations and Transfer Functions
  • State Variable Modeling of the Aircraft Dynamics
  • Introduction to Modern Flight Simulation Codes
  • Pilot Ratings and Aircraft Handling Qualities
