7-5) without accounting for their rates of change. As far as aircraft control system design is concerned, point designs are done for particular flight conditions, and interpolation between point designs can be used when the aircraft mass properties change. This is more likely to be done to deal with movement of the vehicle cm and the resultant effect on static stability (Chapter 2). 7-6) J −1 = ⎢k2 k4 k5 ⎥ Δ ⎢k k k ⎥ ⎣ 3 5 6⎦ where 2 )∕Δ, k1 = (Jyy Jzz − Jyz k2 = (Jyz Jzx + Jxy Jzz )∕Δ 2 )∕Δ k3 = (Jxy Jyz + Jzx Jyy )∕Δ, k4 = (Jzz Jxx − Jzx 2 )∕Δ k5 = (Jxy Jzx + Jyz Jxx )∕Δ, k6 = (Jxx Jyy − Jxy 2 2 2 − Jyy Jzx − Jzz Jxy Δ = Jxx Jyy Jzz − 2 Jxy Jyz Jzx − Jxx Jyz A real symmetric matrix has real eigenvalues and, furthermore, a repeated eigenvalue of order p still has associated with it p linearly independent eigenvectors.

4-4) will be referred to as the Euler kinematical equations. Note that the coefficient matrices are not orthogonal matrices representing ordinary coordinate rotations. 4-4) have a singularity when ???? = ±????∕2. In addition, if these equations are used in a simulation, the Euler angle rates may integrate up to values outside the Euler angle range. Therefore, logic to deal with this problem must be included in the computer code. Despite these disadvantages the Euler kinematical equations are commonly used in aircraft simulation.

Let the position coordinates in body-fixed axes, bf, be rbf = [x y z]T The corresponding matrix equation for h is obtained by replacing the cross-products by ̃r and noting that v and ???? are constants for the purposes of integration. The first 36 THE KINEMATICS AND DYNAMICS OF AIRCRAFT MOTION term contains only integrals whose integrands have a position coordinate integrated dm and, by definition of the cm, they all integrate to zero. 7-3) It was necessary to choose a coordinate system to obtain this matrix and, consequently, it is not possible to obtain a vector equation of motion that is completely coordinate free.
