Solution Approximation For Atmospheric Flight Dynamics Using Volterra Theory, Ashraf Mohammed Kandeel Omran 2010 Old Dominion University

Solution Approximation For Atmospheric Flight Dynamics Using Volterra Theory, Ashraf Mohammed Kandeel Omran

Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering Theses & Dissertations

This dissertation introduces a set of novel approaches in order to facilitate and enrich Volterra theory as a nonlinear approximation technique for constructing mathematical solutions from the governing relationships describing aircraft dynamic behavior. These approaches reconnect Volterra theory and flight mechanics research, which has not been addressed in the technical literature for over twenty years. Volterra theory is known to be viable in modeling weak nonlinearities, but is not particularly well suited for directly describing high performance aircraft dynamics. In order to overcome these obstacles and restrictions of Volterra theory, the global Piecewise Volterra Approach has been developed. This new ...

Flight Attendant/Pilot Communication, In A Post 9/11 Environment: Viewed From Both Sides Of The Fortress Door"., Lori Brown

Lori J. Brown

Reports and a recent global survey (Brown, et al., 2010) reported that out of 271 pilots and flight attendants, 13% indicated a discrete wireless communication device would not enhance safety, 18% indicate a slight effect, 33% indicated a device may somewhat enhance safety, and 21% indicated the device would greatly enhance safety. ...

Chemistry Model For Ablating Carbon-Phenolic Material During Atmospheric Re-Entry, Alexandre Martin, Iain D. Boyd, Ioana Cozmuta, Michael J. Wright 2009 University of Michigan - Ann Arbor

Chemistry Model For Ablating Carbon-Phenolic Material During Atmospheric Re-Entry, Alexandre Martin, Iain D. Boyd, Ioana Cozmuta, Michael J. Wright

Alexandre Martin

Recent and future re-entry vehicle designs, such as the CEV, use ablative material as the main component of the heat shield of their thermal protection system. In order to properly predict the behavior of the vehicle, it is imperative to take into account the gases produced by the ablation process when modeling the reacting flow environment. In the case of charring ablators, where an inner resin is pyrolyzed at a relatively low temperature, the composition of the gas expelled in the boundary layer is complex and might lead to thermal chemical reactions that cannot be captured with simple flow chemistry ...
