In this study the dynamical modeling of the unsteady flow over a flapping wing is considered. The technique is based on collecting instantaneous velocity field data of the flow using Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), applying image processing to these snapshots to locate the airfoil, filling the airfoil and its surface with proper velocity data, applying Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) to these post-processed images to compute the POD modes and time coefficients, and finally fitting a discrete time state space dynamical model to the trajectories of the time coefficients using subspace system identification (N4SID). The procedure is applied using MATLAB for the data obtained from NACA 0012, SD 7003, elliptic airfoil and flat plate, and the results show that the dynamical model obtained can represent the flow dynamics with acceptable accuracy.

In this thesis, a landing autopilot for an UAV (IAI Pioneer RQ-2) is designed based on a nonlinear MATLAB model implemented with MATLAB/Simulink. In order to control the movement of the UAV at lateral and longitudinal axes, a speed, an altitude, a heading angle (direction) and a yaw rate controllers are designed. Controller design procedure is started with determination of different trim points of the aircraft. Next, the corresponding initial states and initial inputs are obtained. The model is linearized a...

A systematic approach for the dynamical modelling of the unsteady flow over a flapping wing is developed, which is based on instantaneous velocity field data of the flow collected using particle image velocimetry (PIV) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations. The location and orientation of the airfoil is obtained by image processing and the airfoil is filled with proper velocity data. Proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) is applied to these post-processed images to compute POD modes and time co...

Turanoğuz, Eren; Alemdaroğlu, Hüseyin Nafiz; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2014)
The study encompasses the design, performance analysis and aerodynamic improvement of the designed medium range tactical unmanned aerial vehicle. Main requirements are set as following; cruising altitute above 3500m, endurance of approximately 10-12 hours, range of 150 km and payload of 60 kg. The conventional design phase is based on the employment of historical equations and experiences. Nowadays, employement of well known equations and experiences during the desing process are not enough to reveal a comp...

In this thesis, control and guidance algorithms for unmanned sea surface vehicles are studied. To design control algorithms of different complexity, first a mathematical model for an unmanned sea surface vehicle is derived. The dynamical and kinematical equations for a sea surface vehicle are obtained, and they are adapted to real life conditions with necessary additions and simplifications. The forces and torques effecting on the vehicle are investigated in detail. Control algorithms for under-actuated six...
