he dynamic model developed in this thesis simulates the Eight Seats-Wingin Surface Effect (WiSE-8) Craft, an aircraft being designed andconstructed by the Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) and the Agency for theAssessment and Application of Technology (Badan Pengkajian dan PenerapanTeknologi, BPPT) team. Nonlinear Six Degree of Freedom (6-DOF) equations of motion are used for modeling the actual motion of the vehicle. The 6-DOF modelpresented in the thesis include detailed model of forces and moments which isacting on the vehicle.This dynamic model is simulated using the M
environment and then visualized using Virtual Reality to explore the aircraft'sbehavior during all flight conditions. Determination of aircraft attitude duringsimulation is carried out using quaternion.Dynamic characteristics of the WiSE-8 craft are then analyzed from thesimulation results. This complete 6-DOF nonlinear simulation can be used as thebasis for future flight control system design and pilot flight training for theaircraft.
