Quick Overview

The stability of aerial vehicles has always been one of the most important topics studied for a safe and smooth flight. An aerial vehicle should have the tendency to return back to a stable position, when it is disturbed from its original path. Dynamic stability is usually thought as the vehicle's response over time when disturbed from a given angle of attack, slip or bank. The advent of flight at high angles of attack has revived our interest in the dynamic stability of aircrafts and missiles. One of the biggest problems in studying dynamic stability is the accurate determination of dynamic stability parameters, in other words, the damping coefficients.

An aerial vehicle should have the tendency to return back to a stable position, when it is disturbed from its original path.

The objective of these lecture series notes is to provide a review of the experimental dynamic stability tools and to present a state-of-the-art survey of the analytical, wind-tunnel and flight-test techniques used for dynamic stability work. Experts from all around the world present the fundamentals of dynamic stability testing, the detailed post processing methodologies, advances in experimental tools, etc. Demonstrations on experimental facilities and examples from flight tests are also presented. Although the main concern is on experimental activities, there are also some demonstrations on the usage of numerical CFD tools on the topic.

The proceedings are intended not only to provide suitable training and information to engineers and scientists who wish to enter the field, but also to provide a focal point for technical discussions and an opportunity to exchange views and ideas among engineers and scientists who already work in the field.

This Lecture Series is supported by EWA, European Wind-Tunnel Association, a Network of Excellence for aeronautical applications and advanced measuring technologies funded by the European Commission.
