Overview

Principles of Flight Simulation is a comprehensive guide to flight simulator design, covering the modeling, algorithms, and software that underpin flight simulation. The detailed equations of motion used to model aircraft dynamics are developed and then applied to the simulation of flight control systems and navigation systems. Real-time computer graphic algorithms are developed to implement aircraft displays and visual systems, covering openGL and openScenGraph. The book also covers techniques used in motion platform development, the design of instructor stations, and validation and qualification of simulator systems.

Principles of Flight Simulation will appeal to senior and postgraduate students of system dynamics, flight control systems, avionics and computer graphics, as well as engineers in related disciplines covering mechanical, electrical, and computer systems engineering needing to develop simulation facilities.
