      To the OP, read up on center of lift as Dennis mentioned,it plays a role of understanding stability. Remember,Longitudinal stability is pitch stability, or stability around the lateral axis of the airplane. The REASON longitudinal stability is engineered into some planes is so that when the aircraft is properly loaded, it is nose heavy.   Consider, for the moment, the Goodyear Inflatoplane, a Cold War oddity of a soft-body aircraft designed primarily as a means to help downed pilots fly back home to freedom.

The experiments included measuring the aircraft responses to variations in the deflection of direc t-lift-control spoilers and to thrust variations, as well as to elevator inputs.

Test of a Goodyear Inflatoplane at NASA Langley Research Center's Full Scale Tunnel. The test looked specifically at wing buckling in the 30 ft x 60 ft test section.

This is a short version of. A forward flight longitudinal dynamic stability code is also developed in the work to solve the longitudinal part of the whole coupled matrix of equations of motion of a helicopter in forward flight. The coupling is eliminated by linearization.

The trim analysis results are used as inputs to the dynamic stability. Longitudinal stability. The longitudinal stability of an aircraft refers to the aircraft's stability in the pitching plane - the plane which describes the position of the aircraft's nose in relation to its tail and the horizon.

(Other stability modes are directional stability and lateral stability.). Notes Summary: Summary: An investigation has been conducted in the Langley full-scale tunnel to determine the aerodynamic and structural deflection characteristics of the Goodyear Inflatoplane over a range of test velocities from minimum stall speed up to speeds giving load factors for wing buckling.

In this work, all the requirements of static and dynamic aircraft stability will be analyzed. This two topics are divided into longitudinal, lateral and directional modes. Another important element in stability analysis is the static margin for free and fixed stick.

SummaryThe general theory of longitudinal stability and control for a single-rotor helicopter is presented in a form similar to that for fixed-wing aircraft.

It is shown to be possible to establish for the helicopter in forward flight, in the same way as for fixed-wing aircraft, stick-fixed static and manoeuvre margins, on which the File Size: 1MB. The study of the static longitudinal stability of an airplane is very important.

Longitudinal stability, as we shall see, is intimately related to the e.g. travel and the loading configuration of an airplane.

In addition the handling characteristics of an airplane in longitudinal flight are. In designing an airplane a great deal of effort is spent in developing the desired degree of stability around all three axes. But longitudinal stability about the lateral axis is considered to be the most affected by certain variables in various flight conditions.

As we learned earlier, longitudinal stability is the quality which makes an airplane stable about its lateral axis. Abstract: In this paper, the equations of motion are derived and longitudinal stability equations are found and linearized.

I’ve featured the Goodyear Inflatoplane before, but I’ve only recently happened upon this test footage. Here, we see an Inflatoplane in a NASA wind. Goodyear truck tires help provide rugged off-road traction, on-road handling, rugged toughness, and comfort.

Whether you need light truck (LT) tires, pickup tires, or heavy-duty truck tires, Goodyear can help enhance your truck's potential.

Static longitudinal stability of a rocket vehicle having a rear-facing step ahead of the stabilizing fins / (Washington, [D.C.]: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, ), by Robert J.

Keynton, United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and Langley Research Center (page images at HathiTrust). Stability about the airplane's longitudinal axis, which extends form nose to tail, is called lateral stability.

This helps to stabilize the lateral or rolling effect when one wing gets lower than the wing on the opposite side of the airplane. There are four main design factors which make an airplane stable laterally. Problems of Longitudinal Stability below Drag Speed, and Theory of Stability under Minimum Constraint S.

It is known that the WIG inherently possesses lateral stability since the lower wing side of a banked WIG is subject to increased lift and accordingly, resulting in the restoring moment. Therefore, most of the stability research of the WIG has been devoted to the longitudinal problem and this paper is also concerned with longitudinal by: Longitudinal Stability.

Like its full sized cousins, each model airplane should have a minimum amount of stability, i.e. it should be able to return to its trimmed flight condition after a disturbance by a gust or a control input.

How much stability is required, depends on the pilots personal taste: contest pilots prefer a small stability. The Effect of High Altitude and Center of Gravity Static Longitudinal Stability and Speed Stability. Figure 1 is a plot of speed stability, which is the manner in which static longitudinal stability is demonstrated in flight.

It measures the relationship between airspeed and longitudinal control force. pdf effects of direction of propeller rotation on factors affecting the longitudinal stability of the XB airplane were measured on a 1/scale model in the 7- by foot tunnel of the Ames Aeronautical Laboratory.

The main effect observed was that caused by regions of high downwash behind the nacelles (power off as well as power on with flaps neutral).Author: Noel K. Delany.Both sources state these are longitudinal equations of motion although their general form differ from each other.

I think I got to understand one point: these equations were derived considering translation motion on the x and z planes and rotation about the y axis (so stated in the first book) Thereafter, I don't understand the procedure.The location of the center of gravity, along the longitudinal axis that would provide neutral longitudinal static stability; (can be thought of as the aerodynamic center for the entire airplane) Explain the effects certain wing designs and components have on Longitudinal Stability.
