Summary Annotation Bridging the gap between academic research and real-world applications, this reference on modern flight control methods for fixed-wing aircraft deals with fundamentals of flight control systems design, then concentrates on applications based on the modern control methods used in the latest aircraft. The book is written for practicing engineers who are new to the aviation industry, postgraduate students in strategic or applied research, and advanced undergraduates. Some knowledge of classical control is assumed. Pratt is a member of IEEE and is UK Member for AIAA's Technical Committee on Guidance, Navigation and Control. Annotation c.

Annotation A complete reference on modern flight control methods for fixed-wing aircraft, this authoritative book includes contributions from an international group of experts in their respective specialized fields, largely from industry. Split into two parts, the first section of the book deals with the fundamentals of flight control systems design; the second concentrates on genuine applications based on the modern control methods used in the latest aircraft. It is assumed that the reader will have some knowledge of classical control. The book builds upon the foundations laid by standard texts on flight control so that the reader will gain a good background in current industrial practice and be in a position to benefit from more specialized reading. Its prime aim is to bridge the gap between academic research and real-world applications in the area and its emphasis on practical approaches will make it particularly suitable for: practicing engineers who are relatively new in the aviation industry and require a consolidated approach to the different aspects of flight control; postgraduate students in strategic or applied research; final stage undergraduates.
Annotation A complete reference on modern flight control methods for fixed wing aircraft.
