(1.1) Which airplane is statically stable, airplane 1 or airplane 2? (2 Points) 0
Angie of Sideslip (1.2) We have developed the 6 DOF aircraft mot' (model. Here are some questions related to it.
(1.2a) In which frame the velocity, roll, pitch, d yaw rate are expressed in? (2 points) (1.2b) What is the rotation sequence from the inertial frame to the body frame? (2 points)
(120) Is the Euler angle rate the same as the yaw, pitch/and roll rates or not? (2 points)
(1.3) Please list two types of drag. (2 points) (1.4) Which point is stable in the following thrust curve, V; or Y4? (2 points) (1.5) In order to decrease the level turn radius, shonjd’"you lower the A/C speed or increase the
A/C speed? (2 points) (1.6) Please explain what the “adverse yaw” is using one sentence. (2 points) (1.7) Will downwash increase or decrease the horizontal tail’s effective angle of attack? (2\points) (1.8) Please write clearly which li'rﬁﬁiwthrﬁgnre below represents the case of stability margin
larger than zero (SM>0)? (2 points), 2. (20 Points)
A T-37 is at the following condition: the Euler angles are \I’ =10",® = 30°,CI) = 5" , and the Euler angle rates are ‘1’ =0” /s,®=10" /s,(I>=—5° ls. Please calculate the roll, pitch, and yaw rates. 3 (30 Points)
The wing-fuselage pitching moment characteristics of a high-wing, single—engine, general aviation airplane follow along with pertinent geometric data of Cm = —0.06—0.0040a ”Ew/ where a is the fuselage reference line angle of attack in degrees and wf means “wing- fuselage”.
The data we know are: SW =180ﬁ2, xcg/c=0.1, bw =36ft, ARW =72, 5w =5.0ft, CL" =0.07/deg, wf iw = 2.00, CL“. = 0.26, I, = 14.75 ft , 77 = 1, AR, = 4.85, CL“ = 0.26 Estimate the horizontal tail area and the tail incidence angle it so that the complete
airplane has the following desired pitching moment characteristics Cm = 0.16 — 0.024a. 2an Equation may be helpﬁJl: Cm0 =VH77CLU (iw +80 —i,), Cm 2— HnCL (1—3—8) ,
