Overview

This book provides a comprehensive guide to modelling and simulation from basic physical and mathematical principles, giving the reader sufficient information to be able to build models and simulations of aerospace vehicles and their embedded systems. Highly relevant to practitioners, it takes into account the multi-disciplinary nature of aerospace products and the integrated nature of the models needed in order to represent them. Volume 1- Platform Kinematics and Synthetic Environment focused on the modelling of a synthetic environment in which aircraft operate and its spatial relationship with vehicles that are situated and moving within it. This volume focuses on the modelling of the vehicles (aircraft and rotorcraft) themselves and the interpretation of their flight dynamics. Key features: Includes chapters on dynamics, aeromechanics, gas turbines, control systems and vehicle systems, as well as the computational aspects of flight simulation. Serves as both a student text and practitioner reference. Follows on from previous Aerospace series titles, offering a complementary view of vehicles and systems from the perspectives of mathematics, physics and simulation. This book offers a comprehensive guide for senior, graduate and postgraduate students of aerospace engineering as well as professional engineers involved in the design, testing and evaluation of air vehicles and their systems.

Reviews

Overall this is an excellent book which leads the reader though a clear description of the subject and is easily navigated so that it also makes a good reference. I would not hesitate to recommend this book to novice and experienced practitioners of Earth modelling, inertial navigation, GPS systems and the like. ( The Aeronautical Journal, May 2010)


Author Information

Dr Dominic Diston is a lecturer in flight dynamics & simulation and system engineering at the University of Manchester. He spent 25 years in the aerospace industry and has wide experience in dynamics, control and simulation of vehicles and systems. This involved substantial periods in research and development as a technical specialist. For many years, he was an active participant in many industry/government projects and working groups on both sides of the Atlantic. Major areas of work have included integrated flight/propulsion control, information modelling, computer-aided engineering and fuel/thermal/power system simulation. All work has been closely linked with project applications, most significantly Harrier, Typhoon, Nimrod and F-35.
