flight dynamics

[′flīt dī‚nam·iks]
(aerospace engineering)
The study of the motion of an aircraft or missile; concerned with transient or short-term effects relating to the stability and control of the vehicle, rather than to calculating such performance as altitude or velocity.

That's because what we're really asking the system to do is maintain aircraft stability, particularly when turbulence and out-of-trim conditions depart the airframe from the intended roll-and-pitch axis.
When an aircraft touches the base of the runway, aircraft persistence over runway longitudinal line and aircraft stability taxing on the runway would be monitored.
The Propeller System, which is manufactured by Hamilton Sundstrand subsidiary Ratier-Figeac, received EASA certification on March 22, and features a pair of clockwise and counter-clockwise rotating propellers on each wing that enhance overall aircraft stability and control and contribute to overall operating efficiency.
"Both design and manufacturing innovations have been essential to our production of this advanced propeller system." Driven by an 11,000-horsepower engine, Hamilton Sundstrand's FH385/386 handles twice the power of any existing in-service propeller and offers a thrust efficiency peak close to 90 percent at high cruise speeds.E Each wing features a pair of clockwise and counter-clockwise rotating propellers, which enhance overall aircraft stability and control, and further contribute to overall operating efficiency.
Essentially Bryan applied the principles of mathematics to the ques-Flight science George Hartley tion of aircraft stability.
This method allows the analysis of the possibilities to correct the stability deficiencies, by implementing an automatic system for increasing aircraft stability functioning as a yaw damper with feedback depending on yaw rate (r [right arrow] [partial derivative]r).
