Sterowanie czynne własnościami dynamicznymi samolotu nieodkształcalnego

Wiesław J. Michalski, Józef A. Pietrucha

The paper concerns a new method of dynamic properties improving controlled objects. Technologically important problems: stabilization of an unstable aircraft and minimization of its center of gravity acceleration are selected to illustrate the method. An aircraft is modelled as nonflexible-bodies system, flying in clear air, that motion after encountering of step gust is described by means of short-period model. The influence of control on a transient process, controls operations, normal acceleration and a pitch one is shown in comparison to an non-controlled aircraft characteristics.
