Download Optimal control : an introduction to the theory and its by Michael Athans PDF

By Michael Athans

Geared towards complicated undergraduate and graduate engineering scholars, this article introduces the speculation and functions of optimum keep an eye on. It serves as a bridge to the technical literature, permitting scholars to judge the consequences of theoretical keep an eye on paintings, and to pass judgement on the advantages of papers at the subject.
Rather than offering an exhaustive treatise, Optimal Control deals a close creation that fosters cautious pondering and disciplined instinct. It develops the elemental mathematical heritage, with a coherent formula of the regulate challenge and discussions of the required stipulations for optimality according to the utmost precept of Pontryagin. In-depth examinations disguise purposes of the idea to minimal time, minimal gas, and to quadratic standards difficulties. The constitution, houses, and engineering realizations of a number of optimum suggestions keep watch over structures additionally obtain attention.
Special gains contain a number of particular difficulties, carried via to engineering cognizance in block diagram shape. The textual content treats just about all present examples of keep an eye on difficulties that let analytic ideas, and its unified strategy makes widespread use of geometric principles to motivate scholars' intuition.

Download Flugmechanik der Hubschrauber: Technologie, das by Walter Bittner PDF

By Walter Bittner

Weltweit ist eine Zunahme neuer Hubschrauberentwürfe zu beobachten. Interne Vibrationsminderung und externe Geräuschentwicklung haben dabei als Entwicklungsziele stark gewonnen. Entscheidend bleiben weiterhin die Fliegbarkeit, als Flugmechanik bezeichnet, sowie die mögliche Nutzlast in Abhängigkeit von der Reichweite. Der Inhalt dieser four. Auflage beschreibt diesbezügliche Entwicklungserfolge.

Der Hubschrauber ist ein hoch komplexes approach, im konstruktiven Aufbau sowie auf seine Dynamik bezogen. Die dafür notwendigen grundlegenden Kenntnisse der Besonderheiten für Ingenieure und Nutzer vermittelt der Autor. Er behandelt die flugmechanischen Zusammenhänge auf der foundation der relevanten Bauelemente: Steuerungssystem samt Verstärkungshydraulik, Taumelscheibe und Mischhebelgetriebe, zur Ansteuerung der Rotorblätter und damit zur Kontrolle des Hubschraubers im Normalbetrieb. Schwerpunkt ist die Flugmechanik, die zentrale Wissenschaft der gesamten Flugtechnik, zur Identifizierung der Flugstabilitäten und der nötigen Steuerbarkeit. Definitionen und Vereinbarungen werden genannt, im Rahmen der Auslegung werden Abflugmasse und Flugleistungen bestimmt. Die AR (Autorotation) als gefahrloses Landeverfahren wird erklärt und der Bodeneffekt wird dargestellt. Die Kosten der Entwicklung und des späteren Betriebes werden ermittelt. Der Autor geht auch auf hubschrauberspezifische Besonderheiten ein: die gewünschte Nähe zu den zahlreichen Blattresonanzen, das Wirbelringstadium, die Flattergrenze, die dynamischen Kopplungen, der Übergang von den DMZ (Dead Man`s sector beim Flächenflugzeug) zur quickly harmlosen AZ (Avoid sector) des Hubschraubers. Aus den Bewegungsgleichungen entsteht die Dynamikmatrix, in der alle Eigenbewegungen enthalten sind, die Stabilitäten. Dagegen wirken die konstruktiv zu dimensionierenden Steuerbarkeiten, von den traditionellen niedrigen bis zu den heute möglichen hohen Frequenzen. Einige Abschnitte wurden entsprechend neuester Erkenntnisse erweitert, z. B. die der dynamische Kopplungen und der Forschungsergebnisse im Bereich der noch weitgehend unerforschten einstationären Aerodynamik, hubschraubertypisch, für die ein Anstoß gegeben wird.

Das Buch unterstützt Leser, die sich mit Hubschrauberentwicklung und deren Betrieb befassen. Die zu erfüllenden Forderungen und anzuwendenden Vorschriften lernt er kennen und kann sie rechtzeitig einbringen. Der Leser kann eine sachgerechte Beurteilung der zu erwartenden Flugeigenschaften und Kosten abgeben.
