The Innovative Control Effector model is a tailless delta-wing aircraft concept equipped with 11 control surfaces with overlapping functionality and two-directional thrust vectoring. The high level of redundancy makes it an interesting object for research on mission-specific control allocation. A (spline-based) incremental control allocation...

Conventional linear control allocation (LCA) methods fail to provide satisfactory performance in flight control systems (FCS) for aircraft with highly nonlinear and coupled control effector suites, especially for tailless aircraft with strong interactions between control effectors. This thesis implements an incremental nonlinear control...

Multivariate simplex B-splines as a modelling technique provide more accurate models than standard polynomial models, which makes them an excellent modelling tool. Their coefficients, which are expressed in a barycentric coordinate system, are abstract. In this paper a physical transformation matrix is derived which can be applied to transform B...
