Classical system identification technique consist of the equation and output error methods which are strongly influenced by data quality. Accordingly, unsatisfactory results may be arisen due to measurement or process noise. Consequently, most of the engineers rely on feed forward neural network in order to cope with those undesired drawbacks. But, noisy data dramatically degrades the performance of neural network as well; thus, the Kalman filter based backpropagation algorithm is proposed. Neural network approach has many parameters, including the hyperparameters, which have to be searched for an optimal result. To determine these optimal parameters, the genetic algorithm is used. In this paper, it is aimed to estimate longitudinal aerodynamic characteristics of highly maneuverable unstable aircraft with the engaged control system for flight simulation data. For this purpose, F-16 aircraft is modelled using the aerodynamic database derived from a low-speed wind tunnel test. Successful results show the effectiveness of the proposed method. To assess neural network approach performance, the most common resampling methods are used and compared in order to choose the best for each longitudinal aerodynamic coefficient.

All rights reserved.When an air released store is developed or undergoes substantial updates, integration to aircraft is realized through a certification process. One of the most important steps of the certification process is to determine safe separation envelope. For this process there are several approaches: full scale flight tests, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation techniques and wind tunnel captive trajectory tests. Separ...

It occurs normally, when a space craft re-enter to the atmosphere. Space crafts are exposed to high temperatures and high pressures because of Earth’s atmosphere and gravity. In addition in high temperatures, gases tend to react with each other. These reactions also have effects on space craft’s surface. In order to calculat...
