Airplane Stability and Control

Malcolm J. Abzug, E. Eugene Larrabee, quot;Airplane Stability and Controlquot;
Cambridge University Press | 2005 | ISBN: 0521021286, 0521809924 | 414 pages | File type: PDF | 5,8 mb
The authors, widely known for their contributions to airplane design and development, have captured both the technological progress and the excitement of this important facet of aviation. This updated edition includes new developments in propulsion-controlled aircraft, fly-by-wire technology, redundancy management, applications, and safety. It is profusely illustrated with photographs and figures, and includes brief biographies of noted stability and control figures along with a core bibliography.

? A comprehensive yet utterly readable history of aviation technology ? Includes computer-oriented stability and control teaching methods ? Includes new developments in propulsion-controlled aircraft, fly-by-wire technology, redundancy management, applications, and safety

¡®This is a splendid book. The authors try to tell the whole story, starting with Cayley. With their immense background, practical as well as academic, the maths are all there but so are countless often fascinating references to actual aircraft ¡­ How often do you find an erudite treatise that is truly un-put-downable?¡¯ Bill Gunston, Aerospace Magazine
