Helicopter Flight Simulation and Automatic Flight Control System Design



Helicopter turboshaft engine ground performance with alternative fuels
Başlamişli, Ufuk; Akmandor, İbrahim Sinan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2012)
In recent years, extensive studies on alternative fuels have been conducted to find environmentally friendly, economically feasible fuels due to finite petroleum sources, environmental and economical reasons. In this thesis, effects of alternative fuels on engine performance and exhaust emission are studied experimentally. Cold and reacting tests have been performed. Volumetric flow rate, discharge pressure are measured according to different pump speed. Droplet diameters, droplet distribution, spray cone a...

Missile autopilot design by projective control theory
Doruk, Reşat Özgür; Kocaoğlan, Erol; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
In this thesis, autopilots are developed for missiles with moderate dynamics and stationary targets. The aim is to use the designs in real applications. Since the real missile model is nonlinear, a linearization process is required to get use of systematic linear controller design techniques. In the scope of this thesis, the linear quadratic full state feedback approach is applied for developing missile autopilots. However, the limitations of measurement systems on the missiles restrict the availability of ...
Military innovation critical and dual use technologies
Yazan, Abdurrahman Mete; Durgut, Metin; Department of Science and Technology Policy Studies (2004)
This thesis represents an attempt to explore critical issues in the national military literature and bring up findings for further studies by exploring military innovation,smart management of defense R&D, critical and dual-use technologies concepts in detail. The study has two main components. The first part provides a conceptual and theoretical framework to discuss and understand military innovation, critical technology and dual-use technology. A military that fails to innovate when their contemporaries ar...
Radar performance analysis approaches for the evaluation of radar systems
Yener, Ümit; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2018)
In this thesis study, some approaches are proposed for radar performance analysis. It turns out that average power and antenna aperture area (equivalently, antenna gain) are the most important parameters for the assessment or comparison of radar systems. Search and track load concepts and the utilization trade between search and tracking tasks in multifunction radars are also presented. For long distance search / tracking tasks, performance of a two-radar system is analyzed, and it is shown that cross range...
