In the current climate of increasing complexity and functionalintegration in all areas of engineering and technology, stabilityand control are becoming essential ingredients of engineeringknowledge. Many of today's products contain multipleengineering technologies, and what were once simple mechanical,hydraulic or pneumatic products now contain integrated electronicsand sensors. Control theory reduces these widely varied technicalcomponents into their important dynamic characteristics, expressedas transfer functions, from which the subtleties of dynamicbehaviours can be analyzed and understood.
Stability and Control of Aircraft Systems is aneasy-to-read and understand text that describes control theoryusing minimal mathematics. It focuses on simple rules, tools andmethods for the analysis and testing of feedback control systemsusing real systems engineering design and development examples.
* Clarifies the design and development of feedback controlsystems
* Communicates the theory in an accessible manner that does notrequire the reader to have a strong mathematical background
* Illustrated throughout with figures and tables
Stability and Control of Aircraft Systems provides boththe seasoned engineer and the graduate with the know-how necessaryto minimize problems with fielded systems in the area ofoperational performance.
