The equations of motion of a rigid aircraft.
Abstract:The equations of motion of a rigid aircraft are required before any analysis can be started. In many problems the Earth can be regarded as ideally flat and non-rotating. In the main ESDU 67003 makes those assumptions and the equations for a rigid aircraft, first in general form, and then in a linearised perturbation form, are presented. The latter form is in widespread use for investigating the small disturbances of an aircraft from some datum flight condition, which is usually taken as a steady state defined by constant linear and angular velocities.
