Book Description

28 Jun 2014 AIAA Education Series
Modeling and Simulation of Aerospace Vehicle Dynamics, Third Edition unifies all aspects of flight dynamics for the efficient development of aerospace vehicle simulations. It provides the reader with a complete set of tools to build, program, and execute simulations. Unlike other books, it uses tensors for modeling flight dynamics in a form invariant under coordinate transformations. For implementation, the tensors are converted into matrices, resulting in compact computer code. In this third edition, the emphasis shifts from FORTRAN to C++, in recognition of the upsurge of object oriented programming in engineering simulations. A new appendix spotlights the C++ architecture of the CADAC++ simulation framework. To aid this new focus, the CADAC4 software package provides-in addition to the FORTRAN programs-eight C++ simulations, which range from UAVs, aircraft, missiles, and boosters to hypersonic aircraft with transfer vehicles for satellite rendezvous. CADAC4, including CADAC Studio for plotting, may be downloaded for free by entering the Supporting Materials password supplied in the book. You need only a Windows-based PC (32 or 64 bit) and a Microsoft C++ compiler. Amply illustrated, this text can be used for advanced undergraduate and graduate instruction or for self-study. Seventy eight problems and nine projects amplify the topics and develop the material further. Qualified instructors may obtain a complimentary solutions manual from AIAA.

About the Author

Peter H. Zipfel is a graduate of the University Stuttgart, Germany, and the Catholic University of America with a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering. He founded Modeling and Simulation Technologies, which advises and instructs functional integration of aerospace systems using computer simulations. For 35 years he taught courses in modeling and simulation, guidance and control, and flight dynamics at the University of Florida, and over the span of 50 years he created aerospace simulations of helicopters, missiles, aircraft, and hypersonic vehicles for the German Helicopter Institute, the U.S. Army, and the U.S. Air Force. He is an AIAA Associate Fellow and an internationally recognized short course instructor.
