Description

Aircraft Handling Qualities

This book provides a readable introduction to handling qualities, the combination of pilot acceptability and piloted performance with stability and control. It adopts the analytical and qualitative standpoints needed for handling qualities analysis and design of fixed–wing aircraft. The book is unique in that it provides insight into the piloting concerns that have affected the success of recent fly–by–wire aircraft developments. The book shows the reader how various handling qualities characteristics originate in the aerodynamic design; how the characteristics can be estimated; how they can be compared with common handling qualities criteria; and how they can be modified. The necessary elements of aerodynamics, flight dynamics, human dynamic behaviour, experimental design and control theory are also summarized. This book supplies the engineering background required to understand the flying qualities of today’s fixed wing aircraft, and lays the essential groundwork for control law designers. The book leads from the full mathematical model of the airframe to the linear models that are useful for insight and for control law design, and discusses the more common flying qualities criteria.
