1. (a) Explain the following terms with examples
i. Stability
ii. Equilibrium.
(b) Comment upon the requirements of stability of a
i. Military \ufb01ghter aircraft
ii. Commercial passenger airplane.
[4+4+4+4]
2. (a) Three dynamic modes describe the lateral motion of an aircraft. What are
they? Explain in detail.
(b) Explain the orientation and position of an airplane in terms of a \ufb01xed frame
of reference. Illustrate with sketch.
[8+8]
3. (a) The use of stability derivatives is most conveniently demonstrated with missile
or rocket con\ufb01gurations. Why? Give the explanation.
(b) Show that
d\u03b2 / dt = (Y\u03b2/ m U)\u03b2 - r
dr/dt=(N\u03b2/ C)\u03b2+ (Nr/C) r
[8+8]
4. Explain the following terms
(a) Down wash
(b) Induced angle of attack
(c) E\ufb00ective angle of attack.
[4+6+6]
5. Using proper sketches, explain stick free longitudinal stability of an airplane. [16]

6. (a) Derive an expression for the normal load factor of an airplane in a steady constant speed, constant angular rate pull - up maneuver in a vertical loop when the airplane is at a \ufb02ight path angle\u03b3 in the loop.

(b) An airplane of mass 1.5 tonnes, \ufb02ying at 250 kmph pulls up in a vertical circular loop of radius 1.2 km. What is the lift required for this maneuver of the airplane while at a \ufb02ight path angle\u03b3 = 60 degrees to the horizontal?

7. Derive the expression for the pedal force for the rudder of an airplane as a function
of hinge moment coe\ufb03cients.

1. Roll accompanies yaw and yaw accompanies roll - elaborate the statement with
sketches.
[16]

2. Consider an object moving through space with no forces of any kind acting on the body. The body is initially moving relative to an inertial coordinate system with a velocity of V0 and is rotating about an axis normal to the velocity vector with an angular velocity of\u03c90 . Determine the position and orientation of the object as a function of time?

[16]
3. The estimation of a \ufb02ight vehicle\u2019s stability and control characteristics is commonly
performed via two sets of parameters. What are they? Explain.
[16]

4. The location of the wing on the longitudinal axis of the fuselage is of considerable importance to its destabilizing in\ufb02uence. Multhopp proposed a formula to account for this phenomenon. What is that formula? Derive it with the support of sketches.

[16]
5. Explain the aerodynamic forces on a stabilator con\ufb01guration in stick free condition
of an airplane.
[16]

6. (a) Derive an expression for the normal load factor of an airplane in a steady constant speed, constant angular rate pull - up maneuver in a vertical loop when the airplane is at a \ufb02ight path angle\u03b3 in the loop.

7. Derive the expression for the derivative of pedal force for the rudder of an airplane
with yaw angle of the airplane.
[16]
8. Explain pure convergence and pure divergence and damped and negatively damped
oscillations in the case of an airplane.
