Flight Dynamics, Simulation, and Control of Aircraft: For Rigid and Flexible Aircraft explains the basics of non-linear aircraft dynamics and the principles of control-configured aircraft design, as applied to rigid and flexible aircraft, drones, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Addressing the details of dynamic modeling, simulation, and control in a selection of aircraft, the book explores key concepts associated with control-configured elastic aircraft. It also covers the conventional dynamics of rigid aircraft and examines the use of linear and non-linear model-based techniques and their applications to flight control. This second edition features a new chapter on the dynamics and control principles of drones and UAVs, aiding in the design of newer aircraft with a combination of propulsive and aerodynamic control surfaces. In addition, the book includes new sections, approximately 20 problems per chapter, examples, simulator exercises, and case studies to enhance and reinforce student understanding. The book is intended for senior undergraduate and graduate mechanical and aerospace engineering students taking Flight Dynamics and Flight Control courses. Instructors will be able to utilize an updated Solutions Manual and figure slides for their course.
