AOI SHINYA (Graduate School of Engineering Associate Professor) SENDA KEI (Graduate School of Engineering Professor)

Outline and Purpose of the Course

Flight Dynamics and Control of Aerospace Vehicles including Analytical Mechanics, Attitude Dynamics of Vehicles, Orbital Mechamics, etc.

Course Goals

To understand analytical mechanics through flight dynamics of aerospace vehicles: Basic items of Analytical Mechanics, Attitude Dynamics of Vehicles, Orbital Mechamics, etc.

Schedule and Contents

Analytical Mechanics,7times,1. Newton equations, 2. Lagrange equations, 3. Hamilton equations
Orbital Mechamics,4times,1. Motions in central force field, 2. Conservation law, 3. Orbit transition
Attitude Dynamics and Control,4times,1. Kinematics of rotation, 2. Attitude mechanics, 3. Stability analysis of equilibrium points, 4. Attitude Control

Evaluation Methods and Policy

Evaluation depends on marks of examination (approximately 80%) and exercises (approximately 20%). Both marks should be 60% or better.

Course Requirements

Foundation of mechanics and mathematics, Flight Dynamics of Aerospace Vehicle (Undergraduate)

Study outside of Class (preparation and review)

Learn the basic mechanics and mathematics for analytical mechanics.
