Performance, Stability, Dynamics and Control of Airplanes – Bandu N. Pamadi – 1st Edition


This book provides a comprehensive and integrated exposure to airplane performance, stability, dynamics, and flight . It supports a two-semester for senior undergraduate or first-year graduate in aerospace engineering. Basic , dynamics, and control are presented to help the reader grasp the main subject matter.In this text, the airplane is assumed to be a rigid body–elastic deformations and their effects on airplane motion are not considered. Numerous solved examples illustrate theory and methods.

Several exercise with answers are included in each chapter to help the reader acquire problem-solving skills. In addition, MATLAB tools are used for the control design.
