Syllabus mentioned in ERP[edit | edit source]

Prerequisites: AE31007 3 - 1 - 0: 4 CreditsIntroduction to the problem of stability and control; Longitudinal static stability - stick fixed and stick free; Control and maneuvering in steady level flight; Lateral/directional dynamic stability; Response of the aircraft to control inputs; Dynamic stability, stick free; response to gusts.Books:B Etkin, Dynamics of Atmospheric Flight, John WileyE L Houghton and A E Brock, Aerodynamics for Engineering Students, Edward ArnoldE L Houghton and N B Carruthers, Aerodynamics for Engineering Students, Edward Arnold

Concepts taught in class[edit | edit source]

The course covers the theory of the tools and concepts on which almost all the control system( eg. Autopilot, PIXHAWK used in drones and other aircraft avionics)is based. Basically the theory to understand how an aircraft is designed such that it is stable when it is up in the air. The essential idea is to bring you away from the conventional Free Body Diagram approach to more mathematical and an indirect approach to quantify the stability of the aircraft at times when you cannot draw FBD.

Student Opinion[edit | edit source]

If course taught in right way or atleast if one try to understand this course by investing genuine efforts. Then this is the course where AI and ML are used extensively used by various industry and startup since one has to use neural network to calculate coefficients used in the equations . If one is able to understand AE21003+AE21008+AE31007+this one+AI/ML (the first four are tough for a reason) then it opens many opportunities (Source: No matter how bad the prof. taught at least this thing was true just look it up in the internet if you are able understand these courses).

How to Crack the Paper[edit | edit source]

Attend the classes

Paper will be conceptual so follow books and if you find it difficult

there are three NPTEL course YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW

There is a research paper that you have to read since the question comes from there as well

Classroom resources[edit | edit source]

Dr. Nandan Kumar Sinha papers on maneuver point and longitudinal stability (Ask Prof. Manoranjan Sinha for this copy)
