Aviation Controls

By Rawicha Brown

The science of aerodynamics is a very complicated subject to understand for the average person, just like most sciences. The majority of aviation control comes from aerodynamics which is the major force but not the only force that goes into how aviation controls itself. There is also aeronautical science which is also a huge force in flight, but here in this article we are going to be looking closer at aerodynamics of a plane, and how you have to understand aerodynamics to understand how a plane can fly.

In 1903 the famous "Wright Brothers" came up with a solution on how to fly an object heavier than air in an air flying machine. That's right, the first airplane was invented. Doing away with the old system and formulas of people trying to imitate birds and get down to the scientific understandings of how wind flows over and around objects which is called the principle of buoyancy.

Wings of a plane are typically mounted to the fuselage with the chord line inclined upward. The whole shape of an aircraft wing can affect the amount of drag and lift that the aircraft produced whether it be long or short.

Simply put with out the factors of drag and lift which are two main forces in aerodynamics airplane flight would not be possible. air generated energy would not be possible either would other devices that we depend on daily through airflow. The aerodynamics factors of thrust, drag, lift, and weight allow pilots to easily control aircraft flight.

Drag which we just discussed in the last paragraph as a major factor in aerodynamics. Drag is the force that prevents any object from moving forward, which most of the time happens when going against the wind current. Drag is made up of two parts; one being parasite drag and the other induced drag.

Roll and spiral modes are known as non-oscillatory reaction which is the scientific analysis term. In a time of a roll the "normalization" point is called the coefficient for the motion of roll. When a pilot is going through a spiral mode, which means that the aircraft is unstable, the aircraft automatically will slow down, then go faster to regulate the aircraft positioning in the air. Now negative spiral stability and not strong damped "Phugoids" are both very flyable, workload increases, all you need to do is modify to autopilot which can accommodate both issues easily for the pilot.

To fix the velocity of Untamed flow around a wing, the "Kutta" condition must be added to gain all the effects of viscosity.

Yaw increases the speed of the out-surfaced wing while reducing speed of the in-surfaced wing which causes a rolling period of time to the in-surfaced side. Rudder fin and fuselage force vectors generated by the roll pitch from the yawing rate input which result in a yawing moment from analysis of aerodynamic science study.

I hope you found this article informative and helpful, providing you with the information you were searching for. Sorry if the terminology was complex, I tried breaking down the meanings as best as I could but most of the complex terminology was actual aerodynamic terms.
