Washington: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Scientific and Technical Information Office ; Springfield, Va.: For sale by the National Technical Information Service, (OCoLC) Material Type: Government publication, National government publication. Static and dynamic stability analysis of the Space Shuttle Vehicle-Orbiter / By Wei J. (Wei Jao) Chyu, joint author. Larry L. Erickson, joint author. The longitudinal static and dynamic stability of a Space Shuttle Vehicle-Orbiter (SSV Orbiter) model is analyzed using the FLEXSTAB computer program. Nonlinear effects are accounted for by application of a correction technique in the FLEXSTAB system; the technique incorporates experimental force and pressure data into the linear aerodynamic : W. J. Chyu, L. L. Erickson and R. K. Cavin. The Space Shuttle orbiter approach and landing test (ALT) program has been completed and flight-test data have become available (ref. 1). Since the dynamic stability characteristics of the Space Shuttle orbiter were experimen- tally determined in wind-tunnel tests at the Langley Research Center and the.

DYNAMIC STABILITY OF SPACE VEHICLES Volume XI - Entry Disturbance and Control By F. D. Steketee Distribution of this report is provided in the interest of information exchange. Responsibility for the contents resides in the author or organization that prepared it. The longitudinal static and dynamic stability of a Space Shuttle Vehicle-Orbiter (SSV Orbiter) model is analyzed using the FLEXSTAB computer program. static stability analysis for the flight. and subsequent landing of Space Transportation System (STS)-1 (). Aeroscience encompasses the engineering specialties of aerodynamics and aerothermodynamics. For the shuttle, each specialty was primarily associated with analysis of flight through the Earth’s atmosphere. Aerodynamics involves the study of local pressures generated over. this book may be reproduced, stored in a retrieval system, or transmitted, in any form or by any means, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, or otherwise, without prior written permission of the authors.

The further away from the center of gravity it is, the more it enhances the static stability of the airplane. The tail efficiency factor depends on the tail location with respect to the airplane wake and slipstream of the engine, and power effects. By design it is made as close to percent efficiency as possible for most static stability. DYNAMIC STABILITY OF SPACE VEHICLES Volume XII - Re-Entry Vehicle Landing Ability and Control By B. J.

Dynamic Stability: Dynamic stability is the tendency of the aircraft over time; An aircraft must have positive static to have dynamic stability [Figure 4] Positive Dynamic Stability: Positive dynamic stability is the tendency of an aircraft to dampen toward original position once disturbed; Neutral Dynamic Stability.
