Advances in Dynamics and Control by S. Sivasundaram (Nonlinear Systems in Aviation, Aerospace, Aeronautics and Astronautics: CRC Press) Presenting research papers contributed by experts in dynamics and control, Advances in Dynamics and Control explores new ideas, reviews the latest results, and discusses emerging directions in the rapidly growing field of aviation and aerospace. The authors discuss a wide range of topics in rotorcraft dynamics, stabilization of unstable aircraft, spacecraft, satellite dynamics and control, missile auto-pilot and guidance design, hybrid systems dynamics and control, and structural and acoustic modeling. The book is a valuable reference for graduate students and scientific workers in universities and industry.

Nonlinear phenomena encountered in aviation and aerospace applications have stimulated cooperation among engineers and scientists from a range of disciplines. Developments in computer technology now allow solutions to many nonlinear problems, and industrial recognition of the use and applications of nonlinear mathematical models for solving technological problems is on the rise.

Advances in Dynamics and Control clearly reflects the effectiveness of this interdisciplinary cooperation. This carefully edited volume contains research papers contributed by international experts that explore many new ideas, results, and research directions. These papers cover a wide range of topics, including rotorcraft dynamics, stabilization of unstable aircraft, spacecraft and satellite dynamics and control, missile auto-pilot and guidance design, hybrid system dynamics and control, intelligent control, neuro-fuzzy techniques, and structural and acoustic modeling.

Features

  • Explores new ideas, reviews the latest results, and discusses emerging directions in aerospace and aviation applications of dynamics and control.
  • Presents research papers contributed by an international, interdisciplinary panel of experts.

Nonlinear phenomena in aviation and aerospace have stimulated cooperation among engineers and scientists from a range of disciplines. Developments in computer technology have allowed for solutions of nonlinear problems, while industrial recognition of the use and applications of nonlinear mathematical models in solving technological problems is increasing.

Advances in Dynamics and Control comprises research papers contributed by expert authors in dynamics and control and is dedicated to Professor A.V. Balakrishnan, University of California, Los Angeles, USA in recognition of his significant contribution to this field of research. During more than 40 years of his outstanding scientific career, he has made significant contributions to the analysis and design of control systems. His contributions range from the theory of optimal control (in the 1960s, he developed a celebrated method — the epsilon technique — for the computation of optimal controls for distributed parameter systems) to filtering and identification theory, to a number of difficult engineering applications that include the control of aircraft under wing turbulence, the control of flexible structures in space, and the aeroelastic modeling of aircraft wings. Professor Balakrishnan has demonstrated the ability to master difficult engineering problems in a rigorous mathematical way and has produced effective engineering solutions.

Advances in Dynamics and Control explores many new ideas, results, and directions in the rapidly growing field of aviation and aerospace. It encompasses a wide range of topics including rotorcraft dynamics, stabilization of unstable aircraft, spacecraft and satellite dynamics and control, missile auto-pilot and guidance design, hybrid systems dynamics and control, and structural and acoustic modeling.

Advances in Dynamics and Control provides a useful source of reference for graduate and postgraduate students, and researchers working in areas of applied engineering and applied mathematics, in university and in industry.
