Equations of Motion for Gliding Flight Maximum Range Conditions Integration of the Glide EOM Numerical Integration Program #2 Gliding Flight I Enforcing steady conditions, ˙ V = 0 and ˙ γ = 0 , and assuming flat glide path, γ 1 , yields ˙ x = V ˙ h = V γ 0 = D + 0 = L - W The University of Texas at Austin
Equations of Motion for Gliding Flight Maximum Range Conditions Integration of the Glide EOM Numerical Integration Program #2 Gliding Flight I The goal of gliding flight is to I remain in the air for the maximum possible time, which means that we want the minimum possible rate of descent, ˙ h min I travel as far as possible during the glide, which implies that we want the minimum glide angle, γ min The University of Texas at Austin

Equations of Motion for Gliding Flight Maximum Range Conditions Integration of the Glide EOM Numerical Integration Program #2 Maximum Range I We wish to integrate the glide equations of motion along the maximum range path since it is typically desirable to maximize ground distance when in gliding situations I How can we achieve maximum range? The University of Texas at Austin
Equations of Motion for Gliding Flight Maximum Range Conditions Integration of the Glide EOM Numerical Integration Program #2 Maximum Range I Maximum range is achieved by I maximizing E = L/D or minimizing γ I max { L/D } ∼ max { C L /C D } I max { C L /C D } ∼ min { γ } ∼ flattest glide angle I E max = constant I How do we find E max ? I Solve for E in terms of C L I Set the first derivative of that function equal to zero and solve for C ?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
