Nonlinear Analysis and Synthesis Techniques for Aircraft Control (Lecture Notes in Control and Information Sciences)

Buy
Despite many significant advances in the theory of nonlinear control in recent years, the majority of control laws implemented in the European aerospace industry are still designed and analysed using predominantly linear techniques applied to linearised models of the aircrafts’ dynamics. Given the continuous increase in the complexity of aircraft control laws, and the corresponding increase in the demands on their performance and reliability, industrial control law designers are highly motivated to explore the applicability of new and more powerful methods for design and analysis. The successful application of fully nonlinear control techniques to aircraft control problems offers the prospect of improvements in several different areas. Firstly, there is the possibility of improving design and analysis criteria to more fully reflect the nonlinear nature of the dynamics of the aircraft. Secondly, the time and effort required on the part of designers to meet demanding specifications on aircraft performance and handling could be reduced. Thirdly, nonlinear analysis techniques could potentially reduce the time and resources required to clear flight control laws, and help to bridge the gap between design, analysis and final flight clearance.

The above considerations motivated the research presented in this book, which is the result of a three-year research effort organised by the Group for Aeronautical Research and Technology in Europe (GARTEUR). In September 2004, GARTEUR Flight Mechanics Action Group 17 (FM-AG17) was established to conduct research on ”New Analysis and Synthesis Techniques for Aircraft Control”. The group comprised representatives from the European aerospace industry (EADS Military Aircraft, Airbus and Saab), research establishments (ONERA France, FOI Sweden, DLR Germany, NLR Netherlands) and universities (Bristol, DeMontfort, Liverpool and Leicester). FM-AG17 was initially chaired by Dr. Markus H¨ogberg of FOI Sweden, and subsequently by Dr. Martin Hagstr¨om, also of FOI.

IR Theory, Historical Analogy, and Major Power War
IR Theory, Historical Analogy, and Major Power War
This book critically examines elements of America-First nationalism, neo-conservatism, neo-realism, neo-liberalism, environmental theories, and social constructionism by way of developing an “alternative realist” approach to the study of the origins of major power war. The author critiques concepts of “polarity” and...
More than a Game: The Computer Game as Fictional Form
More than a Game: The Computer Game as Fictional Form
Taking its cue from practices of reading texts in literary and cultural studies, this book considers the computer game as a new and emerging mode of contemporary storytelling. In a carefully organized study, Barry Atkins discusses questions of narrative and realism in four of the most significant games of the last decade: Tomb Raider,...

Ontology-based Application Integration

There is probably no invention in the history of mankind that had such a profound impact on our lives in such a short time as the World Wide Web. Twenty years ago, Tim Berners-Lee has developed the first versions of HTML which allowed to weave documents into the large hypertext document that we know today. It was soon realized that...
