Abstract

In the absence of adequate data from flight trials, a request was put forward for the development of mathematical models of various configurations of slalom manoeuvres. The models were to be based on the existing manoeuvres as flown by United States Army, specified in ADS-33D, the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA), Bedford and the German Aerospace Research Establishment (DLR), the definitions of which have been stated previously by the DERA. This report describes the development of the manoeuvres and their utilisation within the inverse simulation package HELINV, at Glasgow University. It will be shown that data acquired from the inverse simulations of these manoeuvres can be used in workload calculations using software developed by Glasgow Caledonian University, and this process in itself will verify or disprove the validity of the manoeuvres that have been developed. Although there is potentially no real substitute for genuine data obtained from actual flight trials, it is hoped that these slalom simulations will prove to be a useful tool when used in conjunction with the inverse simulation, workload estimation metrics and handling qualities software.
