    Synopsis Thorough coverage of space flight topics with self-contained chapters serving a variety of courses in orbital mechanics, spacecraft dynamics, and astronautics This concise yet comprehensive book on space flight dynamics addresses all phases of a space mission: getting to space (launch trajectories), satellite motion in space (orbital motion, orbit transfers, attitude dynamics), and. Manned Space Flight: The Space Shuttle Program. An Assessment of Space Shuttle Flight Software Development Processes Commission on Engineering and Technical Systems ISBN X (paper) ISBN (paper) National Academies Press, S. Protecting the Space Shuttle from Meteoroids and Orbital Debris.

    About the Book. Based on 25 Years of Aircraft Flight Mechanics Teaching at the U.S. Air Force Academy. Introduction to Aircraft Flight Mechanics, Second Edition revises and expands this acclaimed, widely adopted textbook. Outstanding for use in undergraduate aeronautical engineering curricula, it is written for those first encountering the topic by clearly explaining the concepts and. With practical, real-world examples illustrating key concepts throughout, this concise resource provides thorough coverage of space flight topics with self-contained chapters serving a variety of courses in orbital mechanics, spacecraft dynamics, and astronautics.

    An overview of orbital mechanics, rocket propellants, and rocket propulsion. BASICS OF SPACE FLIGHT: Part I - Rocket Propellants. In this page we classify and describe the types of chemical propellants typically used in rocketry. Included are tables listing the properties of the most frequently used fuels and oxidizers. This book combines a highly accessible style of presentation with contents that will appeal to graduate students and to professionals already familiar with basic flight dynamics. Dynamic analysis has changed dramatically in recent decades, with the introduction of powerful personal computers and scientific programming languages.

You can see our. Orbital mechanics, also called flight mechanics, is the study of the motions of artificial satellites and space vehicles moving under the influence of forces such as gravity, atmospheric drag, thrust, etc.

Orbital mechanics is a modern offshoot of celestial mechanics which is the study of the motions of natural celestial bodies such as the moon and planets. The mechanics of space flight is an old discipline. Its topic originally was the motion of planets, moons and other celestial bodies in gravitational fields.

Kepler's ( - ) observations and measurements have led to probably the first mathematical description of planet's motion. Mechanics of Flight is an ideal introduction to the basic principles of flight for students embarking on courses in aerospace engineering, student pilots, apprentices in the industry and anyone who is simply interested in aircraft and space flight.

Written in a straightforward and jargon-free style, this popular classic text makes the fascinating topic of aircraft flight engaging and easy to by: Space Flight Dynamics presents wide-ranging information on a host of topics not always covered in competing books. It discusses relative motion, entry flight mechanics, low-thrust transfers, rocket propulsion fundamentals, attitude dynamics, and attitude control.

The book describes airplanes, gliders, rotary wing and flapping wing flight vehicles, rockets, and spacecraft and visualizes the essential principles using detailed illustration. It is an ideal resource for managers and technicians in the aerospace industry without engineering degrees, pilots, and anyone interested in the mechanics of flight.

Based on a year successful approach to teaching aircraft flight mechanics at the US Air Force Academy, this text explains the concepts and derivations of equations for aircraft flight mechanics. It covers aircraft performance, static stability, aircraft dynamics stability and feedback control.5/5(2).
