Title: Simulation of Flexible Aircraft

Abstract: This study aims to improve flight simulation of flexible aircraft. More specifically, this thesis concentrates on comparing two flexible aircraft flight simulation models. Both modeling techniques considered use the same aircraft structural and aerodynamic data provided by the aircraft manufacturer. Simulation models were developed and tested using a number of control inputs in both longitudinal and lateral dimensions. Time history responses from the simulations were compared. The effect of increasing the flexibility of the aircraft model was also studied on both models. It was found that the two models produce very similar results for the original aircraft stiffness case. However, the lateral response of the two models diverges as the stiffness is lowered. A number of recommendations are made for further testing and research, based on the conclusions of the study.
