Active flutter suppression, which is a part of the group of flight vehicle technologies known as active controls, is an important contributor to the effective solution of aeroelastic instability problems when they pop up late in the development of a new aircraft or, if used from the start of the design process, it is a key element in multidisciplinary design optimization that could lead to Cited by: Flight investigation of a mechanical feel device in an irreversible elevator control system of a large airplane / (Washington, D.C.: National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, ), by B. Porter Brown, James B. Whitten, Robert G. Chilton, and United States. National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (page images at HathiTrust). Stability augmentation is the artificial improvement, generally by electromechanical feedback systems, of airplane stability and control while the airplane remains under the control of the human pilot. Stability augmentation generally changes the airplane’s stability derivatives and modes of motion.

An investigation to study the low-speed stability and control characteristics of a four-duct tandem V/STOL airplane has been made at the NASA Langley Research Center using a scale model.
The investigation included free-flight tests in still air for study of the vertical. Lateral-directional stability augmentation using a yaw damper To remedy the flying qualities deficiencies of jet trainer aircraft, an effective solution from a technical and economical standpoint is the use of an automatic stability augmentation system with a yaw damping function for Dutch roll.

• The next step in the evolution of aircraft feedback control system was control augmentation systems (CAS). • With a CAS, a pilot stick input is provided to the flight control system in two ways – through the mechanical system – through the CAS electrical path.
• The CAS design eliminated the SAS problem of pilot inputs being opposed by the feedback loop. • Aircraft such as the A-7, F, F, File Size: 1MB. TECH LIBRARY KAFB, NM.

Driscoll Langley Research Center Langley Station, Hampton, Va. NATIONAL AERONAUTICS AND SPACE Size: 1MB. The conventional engine VTOL concepts which do not use additional lift engines for vertical flight must have a net takeoff thrust-to-weight ratio in excess of one.
If the jet exhaust is not diverted to some other location for vertical flight, the aircraft must either be a tail sitter (VATOL). This study proposes a stability augmentation system (SAS) in longitudinal flying modes for steady and level flight at all airspeeds and altitudes within Baseline-II E-2 BWBs operational flight.
During low speed operations V/STOL aircraft are not only dependent upon these propulsion systems for lift, but also for the forces and moments needed for flight path. and attitude control.

Abstract. Various aspects of the aerodynamics of V/STOL and STO/VL aircraft have been the subject of many studies over the past 20 to 30 years. Most of these studies have been experimental investigations because at low speeds the flow fields around these aircraft involve large deflections of local flow relative to the free stream as well as significant amounts of viscous by: The aircraft was powered by a single Rolls-Royce Pegasus turbofan engine.
It was modified into the V/STOL Systems Research Aircraft (VSRA, fig. ) with the installation of digital fly-by-wire controls for pitch, roll, yaw, thrust magnitude and thrust deflection, and programmable electronic head-up displays.

Flight control system architecture Displays A head-up display (HUD) and a head-down primary flight display (PFD) provided primary flight information, including aircraft attitude, flightpath angle, airspeed, rate of change of airspeed, altitude, engine power, wing tilt, flap angle, heading, sideslip, and distance from the airfield.

An unexpectedly high augmentation of aerodynamic lift for a given amount of power in STOL operation of a V/STOL aircraft is achieved by combining the unique features of a lifting body with those of a "jet flap", i.e.
an aerodynamic mechanism in which a slipstream is directed over a deflected flap. Specifically, a movable flap is located on the trailing edge of the lifting body, and a tiltable Cited by: The gain-scheduled flight controller, which consists of a gain-scheduled stability augmentation system, a gain-scheduled control augmentation system, and a.
Such systems have been developed and tested in simulators (e.g., the vertical motion simulator at NASA-Ames Research Center) and in flight in variable-stability aircraft (e.g., NASA's CH Chinook). The ability to stabilize a helicopter in an established trim condition is by: The study of flight dynamics requires a thorough understanding of the theory of the stability and control of aircraft, an appreciation of flight control systems and a grounding in the theory of.
A stability augmentation system (SAS) is another type of automatic flight control system; however, instead of maintaining the aircraft on a predetermined attitude or flight path, the SAS will actuate the aircraft flight controls to dampen out aircraft buffeting regardless of the attitude or flight path.
A flight test investigation of the E-2C airplane fitted with two different propeller designs – the Hamilton-Sundstrand model and model NP – was conducted to study propeller effects on airplane static longitudinal stability.

The abbreviation V/STOL is a combination of two other abbreviations, VTOL and STOL, which stand for "vertical takeoff and landing''and "short takeoff and landing." Thus V/STOL aerodynamics refers to an area of the subject of aerodynamics that is of special interest to the design of aircraft .Modifications and additions to the airplane and helicopter requirements for conversion to V/STOL requirements were based on a broad background of flight results and pilots' coimnents (see pilot rating system, table l) f rom VTOL and STOL type aircraft, BLC (boundary- layer- control) equipped aircraft, variable stability aircraft, landing.This banner text can have markup.
