Abstract

An Euler method for the computation of steady and unsteady flows is applied to the prediction of longitudinal dynamic parameters for a full aircraft configuration. Both a simplified wing-tail representation and a detailed geometric representation are considered. In order to evaluate the accuracy of the approach, computed values are directly compared with flight-test data. The results reveal the importance of considering detailed models of the complete configuration for the accurate determination of dynamic response.
