Concise and other forms of EoMs (Working Engineer Version)
Concise and other forms of EoMs (Working Engineer Version)#
In the past two sections, a good Undergraduate level of description of the Concise and Non-Dimensional forms of the Equations of Motion was shown. Let’s now present things slightly differently - using more nomenclature, just to fuck things up for you properly.
We’re also going to change the meaning of a couple of symbols until I’m smart enough to figure out a way to make this next section consistent with the last one (some large find/replace operation, I suspect).
Let’s think about where we ended up, in the preceding, the Concise Form of the Longitudinal Equations of Motion was given as (75):
Which is but one means of presenting the equations of motion in state space formulation. Concise in this representation means (I think):
Each term in the A and B matrix is a single term
Each output is in real engineering units
