Mathematical programming problems of quasi-steady flight mechanics

Abstract

This thesis deals with mathematical programming problems of flight mechanics of a jet aircraft. The aircraft is assumed to be in quasi-steady flight. Different flight phases are considered here; they cover rectilinear level flight, climbing flight, gliding flight, and curvilinear level flight. In this thesis, the problems studied include feasibility and optimization. These problems are solved via the modified quasilinearization algorithm for mathematical programming problems. Results for the different flight phases are presented here. They illustrate the performances of a jet aircraft in rectilinear level flight, climbing flight, gliding flight, and curvilinear level flight
