On this page you will find supplementary materials to the book "Flugregelung" (Flight Control):

  1. Matlab® scripts for example calculations,
  2. An overview list with terms and definitions.

The scripts are based on Matlab® 2010b code. With this, the following can be calculated for the data of six example aircrafts provided in the appendix. These are:

  • Derivatives
  • State space representation
  • Eigenvalues
  • Frequency Responses
  • Root locus curves and
  • Time responses

The source code is commented. To use the code with other Matlab® versions or in other computer algebra systems, such as Octave or SciLab, adaptations may be necessary.

The source code is intended exclusively for non-commercial use. Any industrial or commercial use of the source code requires the permission of the authors.
