Abstract [en]

A modern ghter aircraft has an advanced ight control system which highly augmentsthe control inputs from the pilot. To verify a new iteration of the control system is a timeconsuming and expensive task. It is desired to nd qualities that is not satisfactory to thepilot as early as possible in the verication process to reduce the cost for design changes.The primary objective of this thesis is to develop methods that can be used for automaticalevaluation of aircraft ying qualities from the data provided by a desktop simulator. A desktopsimulator is cheap to use compared to ight tests and tests with a pilot in a simulator.Only ghter aircraft in the precision ight phase are studied however the methods developedcould easily be extended to include other types of aircraft and other phases of ight.To evaluate the ying qualities two sets of criteria are used the MIL-F-8785C standardand the Gibson criteria. The MIL-F-8785C standard uses a second order linear system toevaluate the aircraft's ying qualities. The linear system is estimated from the nonlineardata and evaluated against the MIL-F-8785C standard. The Gibson criteria studies the timeand frequency domain directly and are designed to work with highly augmented aircraft.The set of Gibson criteria used in this thesis primary evaluates data from the time domainhowever one criterion from the frequency domain is studied.The methods developed to evaluate the ying qualities from the MIL-F-8785C standardonly works for a small part of the ight envelope furthermore they show a large dierencefor what is considered acceptable ying qualities. Because of this the methods developed forthe MIL-F-8785C standard are considered not to be suited for evaluating ying qualities forhighly augmented aircraft. The methods developed to evaluate the ying qualities againstthe Gibson criteria works for a large part of the ight and also show a high accuracy. Thismakes the methods suited for evaluation of the ying qualities.
