Course Contents
Derivation and analysis of the stability and dynamic behavior of aerospace vehicles, taking into account the effects of different altitude/velocity combinations.
Study Goals
At the end of this course, the student will be able to:

1. Determine the stability properties and characteristic motions of aerospace vehicles
2. Predict rotational motion of aerospace vehicles by means of simulation
3. Master reference frames + transformations
4. Utilize Euler angles
5. Derive and linearize the Equations of Motion
6. Determine static and dynamic stability properties
7. Separate symmetric/asymmetric E.O.M
8. Calculate and interpret Eigenvalues and Eigenmodes
9. Apply theory to different altitude/velocity regimes
10. Identify the effect of different vehicle configurations.
Education Method
Lecturing and self study.
Assessment
Written exam.
Remarks
This course is the last in a series of three. It is preceded by Aerospace Design and Systems Engineering Elements I (AE1201) in BSc year 1 and followed by Aerospace Design and Systems Engineering Elements I (AE2101) in BSc year 2
The course is preceding the Design Synthesis (AE3200).
Set-up
During the course students attend active lectures that cover relevant topics. Students are expected to have read the related course material in advance of class sessions; class sessions then consist of introduction of new theory, and exploration of the implications of the theory using real-life examples.
