Aircraft Aerodynamics

This model simulates the aerodynamics of an aircraft, incorporating the aircraft body model, aerodynamic data, and controller design. The aircraft body is characterized through a mass and inertia matrix, and driven through applied forces to the rigid body centre of mass frame. Nonlinear functions of angle-of-attack, air density variations, and more are implemented with lookup table data.

The attached OptimalControl and ControlLQG templates provide analysis and optimizations for controller design.
