ON LATERAL STABILITY OF AIRPLANES UNDER RANDOM PARAMETRIC EXCITATIONS DUE TO VERTICAL GUSTS

ZUR SEITENSTABILITAET VON FLUGZEUGEN BEI STOCHASTISCHER PARAMETERERREGUNG DURCH VERTIKALBOEEN

Variations of the angle of attack due to vertical gusts change the values of the lateral stability derivatives and influence the lateral stability of airplanes. Since the vertical turbulence can best be described as a stochastic process the coefficients of the equations of motion are randomly excited. Stability criteria for linear stochastic differential equations and computer simulation of aircraft behavior under random parametric excitation are used to determine and to discuss possible lateral instabilities during flight in turbulence.
