Aerodynamic model development and simulation of airliner spin for upset recovery
Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute (TsAGI)
2 De Montfort University Leicester, UK
The aerodynamic model of a generic airliner configuration is developed for a wide range of angles of attack, sideslip and angular rate based on experimental data obtained in wind tunnels using static, forced oscillations and rotary balance tests. The developed aerodynamic model is applied for the investigation of the airliner scaled model nonlinear dynamics at high angles of attack with an intensive rotation to identify potential spin modes and spin recovery procedures. The evaluated equilibrium spin parameters and simulated recovery control deflections are in good agreement with the experimental results from free-spin tests obtained in the TsAGI vertical wind tunnel. The work is performed in connection with the European FP7 project SUPRA (Simulation of UPset Recovery in Aviation, www.supra.aero).
