Homework Help: Need a couple of ODE's used in aerospace engineering

  1. Dec 5, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I have an assignment where I must solve a coupled system of equations, with di fferential interdependencies (e.g. a system of ODEs) of dimension no less than three (e.g. in x; y and z). choose a system relevance to Aerospace Engineering, or some applied topic. You
    must use your solution to predict or evaluate something useful.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I will probably have little trouble with solving the equations, but the problem is I am not able to find a set of equations fitting this description. I have tried for a couple of days now. Any suggestions or hints would be greatly appreciated!! : )

    I did a google search on System of ODEs in Aerospace, and got lots of good hits. Here's one for a university course:

    The textbooks listed at the bottom of that page would likely be of help to you. You can check out your university library to look for them and similar materials.
