Exercise Set VI
Create a MATLAB code, similar to the one you wrote for Exercise Set V, to treat lateral-directional motions.
First, compute the dimensional stability derivatives from the following dimensionless variab

Exercise Set VII
We will consider using state-variable feedback to improve the lateral-directional response of the
Boeing 747 aircraft, particularly the Dutch Roll mode. Assume initial trim conditions corresponding
to th

We will consider the response of the Boeing 747 aircraft to longitudinal perturbations.
1. Write a simple Matlab code to reproduce the results of the sample calculations presented in class.
That is, ass

We continue our study of the Boeing 747 aircraft. We will want to use some of the results
from Exercise Set I, so they are summarized here (so that we all use the same values as a
starting point).

1. Use the dimensions provided in Exercise Set II for the Boeing 747 aircraft to estimate the values of Cm q
and Cm for both ight conditions of Exercise Set I. Refer to Solution Set I for any additiona
