Aircraft – A Modelica Library for Aircraft Dynamics Simulation
2004 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
The Aircraft library is a versatile Modelica library for modeling and simulating aircraft dynamics applications. It is structured into a number of sublibraries, that contain models for describing the aerodynamics, atmosphere aerodynamic impact on aircraft, bodies, engine models, coordinate transformation models, etc. The library is very easy to use, and automatically computes up-to-date center-of-mass and moment of inertia depending on the mass and position of components included in the application model. External components written in C can be included, e.g. external controller models. The library has successfully been used to model the flight dynamics of a generic aircraft whose visual appearance has superficial similarities to the Swedish JAS Gripen aircraft, using the MathModelica tool for modeling, simulation, and 3D visualization.
