Learning six Degrees-of-Freedom Missiles, Aircraft, and Hypersonic Vehicles

Modeling, Simulation, and Analysis of Aerospace Vehicles


Share |

Summary:

Technical Training Short On Site Course Quote

Modeling, simulating, and analyzing (M&S&A) flight dynamics of missiles, aircraft, and hypersonic vehicles requires multi-disciplinary skills in aerodynamics, propulsion, guidance, and control. This three-day course highlights 6 DoF modeling techniques, introduces computer tools, and teaches

The instructor draws examples from his experience with the SRAAM air-to-air missile, F16 aircraft, and NASA X30 hypersonic vehicle. He demonstrates M&S&A, using the CADAC++ computer code he developed, and instructs the trainees in the execution of the simulations on their laptops.

This workshop transfers hands-on experience to build, execute, and analyze high-fidelity aerospace simulations. Some of the topics include: modeling flight dynamics with tensors, coordinate systems, 6 DoF equations of motion, aerodynamic modeling, autopilots, navigation, guidance, and control. These topics will be taught using missiles, aircraft, and hypersonic vehicles modeled in C++ computer simulations. CADAC++ is complimentary and the C++ compiler is a free download from Microsoft.

CADAC++ serves as the simulation architecture. It supports multi-object programming, event sequencing, and Monte Carlo analysis. Plotting and post processing is provided by CADAC Studio. Participants should bring Microsoft Windows compatible lap top computer (administrative privilege required) with Microsoft Visual C++ compiler installed (Express version is a free download from Microsoft, but only for private computers). CADAC++, CADAC Studio and the four prototype simulations will be provided at the start of the course.

Instructor:

Dr. Peter H. Zipfel is a graduate of the University Stuttgart, Germany, and the Catholic University of America with a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering. Fifteen years ago, he founded Modeling and Simulation Technologies, which is devoted to consult and instruct in the functional integration of aerospace system using computer simulations. Over 35 years he taught courses in modeling and simulation, guidance and control, and flight dynamics at the University of Florida; and over the span of fifty years he created aerospace simulations of helicopters, missiles, aircraft, and hypersonic vehicles for the German Helicopter Institute, the U.S. Army, and U.S. Air Force. He is an AIAA Associate Fellow, an internationally recognized short course instructor, and the author of the influential textbook “Modeling and Simulation of Aerospace Vehicle Dynamics,” now in its third edition by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).
