to develop the nonlinear transformer that is required for particular
implementation of a complex aircraft control system. Aircraft longitudinal and lateral
motions are presented by studying and analyzing the aircraft dynamics. The equations
of motion are covered both forces and moments exerted on the aircraft using Newton's
second law with the assumption that at each equation the aircraft is regarded as a rigid
body. Six equations were classified, three equations for the longitudinal motion and
three equations for the lateral motion. The matrix for the differential equations
vectors for each force and moment were found with the aid of the computer aided
modern bond graph program (CAMP-G) including symbolic manipulation.
MATLAB/SIMULINK offered additional simulation capability.
