Abstract : Optimal Control theory is used to determine the thrust and bank angle programs for minimum time turns of a supersonic aircraft to a specified point or line when constant altitude is maintained. A stall constraint, a maximum velocity placard limit, a maximum normal load constraint, and maximum and minimum thrust limits are imposed. Numerical results are presented for a typical supersonic aircraft at 25,000 feet altitude when the turns are such that an intermediate thrust arc at the… CONTINUE READING
