Flight dynamics analysis and control of transport aircraft subject to failure
After a structural damage or component failure during any flight mode, aircraft dynamics are dramatically altered. A quick and adequate stabilization effort is crucial. Flight dynamics for several

Calculation of the longitudinal stability derivatives of a transport aircraft and analysis of longitudinal modes
In this study, the longitudinal stability derivatives of a transport aircraft have been calculated by modeling the aircraft configuration and flight condition. The applying method is able to use for
Design and Non-Linear Simulations of a Fault-Tolerant Flight Control
In this paper, a Fault-Tolerant Control strategy (FTC) was applied using a linear dynamical model of a business jet aircraft subjected to actuation faults. As a baseline controller, an optimal linear
Simulation and Control of Fixed Wing Aircraft after a Major Component Loss
The objective of this paper is to find means to control and stabilize a fixed wing aircraft after loss of a major stabilization and/or control component or a failure during the flight. The method
Flight control of a small unmanned aerial vehicle using a dynamic compensator
In this paper, we design a flight controller using a dynamic compensator for a small unmanned aerial vehicle. The proposed method ensures flight stability during altitude holding and waypoints
An Investigation of the Longitudinal Dynamic Stability of a Box-Wing Aircraft
: This study was undertaken to identify the longitudinal dynamic characteristics of the Box-Wing Aircraft. Research on the Box Wing aircraft gained traction following increasing demand for an
A methodology to assess robust stability and robust performance of automatic flight control systems
This article presents a methodology to assess the robust stability and the robust performance of automatic flight control systems (AFCS). The mathematical tool used in the proposed methodology is the
Flight control and flight experiments of a tilt-propeller VTOL UAV
TLDR
The equations of motion are generated by modelling the aerodynamic and propulsion forces and moments for an unmanned, fixed wing, vertical take-off and landing aerial vehicle driven by a fixed-pitch tilt-propeller system.
Longitudinal Stability Analysis of a UAV under the Uncertainty of Two Stability Derivatives
The longitudinal stability analysis of an aircraft is performed by the investigation of root locations of its transfer function’s denominator (the characteristic equation). However, this transfer

Design of Fuzzy Pitch Attitude Hold Systems for a Fighter Jet
TLDR
The design of fuzzy logic pitch attitude hold systems for an F-4 fighter jet under a variety of degraded performance conditions are described and a 25-rule fuzzy logic controller outperforms the conventional gain controller in terms of settling time, peak value, and steady state error for a step response in all cases.
