Abstract:
Typical design challenges for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) require low aerodynamic drag and structural weight. Both of these requirements imply that these aircraft are considerably more flexible than conventional aircraft and their stability analyses are more complex since they require models unifying rigid body and elastic dynamics. This paper aims to built such a model for a generic UAV. The model is then used to address stability in terms of divergence and flutter.
