Abstract

The opinions of design, test and analysis engineers from industry and government laboratories on the status and future of stability and control prediction are presented in this paper. Air transport, fighter and flying wing configurations, considered to be representative of the platforms of concern to a vast majority of the commercial and military industries, are discussed. Static and dynamic stability as well as control effectiveness are used to describe the stability and control characteristics. Achievements necessary to advance the current status are decomposed into relatively straightforward and technologically challenging obstacles to overcome. Finally, a roadmap to address these obstacles is presented.
