Time-varying pilot control identification is essential for better understanding of how pilots respond when faced with sudden changes in the dynamics of the vehicle they control, such as when automatic control and stabilization systems disengage or undergo a mode transition. This paper presents the results of a human-in-the-loop experiment...

The Variable Camber Continuous Trailing Edge Flap (VCCTEF) is a novel aircraft control system that intents to prevent undesired aeroelastic deflections by precise lift tailoring along the wing span. However, the unknown dynamics and increased complexity of the new hardware imposes difficulties to establish an optimal controller. One approach is...

This report contains a summary of the main conclusions and recommendations from extensive work performed by the Flight Mechanics Action Group on Handling Qualities (FM/AGOl) of the Group for Aeronautical Research and Technology in Europe (GARTEUR). The work of this Action Group, which involved cooperation between research institutes of France ...

Current design methods for digital control systems to be operated in a continuous environment do not always result in the most efficient use of digital computing hardware. To improve this situation, a dedicated frequency response analysis method was developed for hybrid systems. For practical use of the method, it has been expanded to an...

Future transport aircraft will be different from to-day's in that they will be designed to be statically neutrally stable or even unstable to improve economics, while the stability will be provided by means of a fly-by-wire flight control system. Since this system will be flight critical it is necessary to develop a philosophy on the treatment...

This report presents the parameter identification results derived from data recorded during non-steady symmetric flight test manoeuvres with the Hawker Hunter Mk VII laboratory aircraft. This flight test program was executed in co-operation with the Department of Aerospace Engineering of the Delft University of Technology. The reproducibility of...

Beste, M.R. (author)
In this report, a method is developed to reconstruct the flight-path of an aircraft in symmetric, non-steady flight by representing this path by a set of splines. That set of splines is chosen, for which the flighttest data are best explained in some weighted least squares sense. This leads to a large, sparse, nonlinear, overdetermined system,...

This report deals with determining a hypothetic control system which provides improved rigid body and structural mode damping of a flexible aircraft in order to improve the riding qualities and to minimize the wing bending moment during flights in turbulence. The equations of motion used in the computations are related to a high' performance...

The application of Active Control Technology concepts and in particular the Relaxed Static Stability principle in certain categories of future transport aircraft will lead to the introduction of primary flight control systems incorporating full-time stability augmentation. For this category of transport aircraft adequate handling quality...

A very accurate measurement system and a data reduction method have been developed to extract performance data from a single dynamic maneuver, in order to reduce the large amoimt of flight hours required for the determination of these data by means of measurements in steady flight. In order to evaluate the applicability of this method to a modem...

Mooij, H.A. (author)
The introduction of fly-by-wire primary flight control systems in certain categories of future transport aircraft, makes it highly desirable to initiate further studies into handling quality criteria for future guidance in system design and airworthiness certification. The handling quality criteria for such aircraft must be based on parameters...

The document contains a general theory towards the observation and optimal control of disturbed, target following aerospace systems. Disturbed, target following aerospace systems eire defined as aerospace systems that are designed to track a moving target system, while they are subjected to external, time-varying disturbances. The first five...
