Nonlinear Stabilization of High Angle-of-Attack Flight Dynamics Using Bifurcation Control
Abed, Eyad H.
MetadataShow full item record
We consider the problem of designing stabilizing control laws for flight over a broad range of angles-of-attack which also serve to signal the pilot of impending stall. The paper employs bifurcation stabilization coupled with more traditional linear control system design. To focus the discussion, a detailed analysis is given for a model of the longitudinal dynamics of an F-8 Crusader.
