Generalized aerodynamic force matrix

  1. Sep 12, 2006 #1
    Hello guys,
    Do you know a good source for the definition of the generalized aerodynamic force matrix? I know that the term ij is the work done by the pressure on the mode j that works with the displacements of mode i integrated over the wing domain. This formulation is derived using the Lagrangian approach for a dynamic system.
    Does anyone know a good source with all the details with this definitions?

    Possibly try http://www.xs4all.nl/~rauw/fdcreport/FDC14_preview_007.pdf [Broken]
    This has a fairly good coverage of aircraft modelling, I'm not sure if it's quite what you're looking for as I've not dealt with forces yet, but there is a section that discusses them...

    Thank yuou for you answer. The book you adviced is very nice but there is not mention of the generalized aerodynamic force matrix.
