N. Fezans, C. Kappenberger
Keywords: damaged aircraft, two-parts model, flight dynamics, empennage damage modeling
A flight dynamics model of horizontal tail plane damage is derived from a nominal model of the aircraft and the extended lifting-line theory. Equations of the model and the way to obtain them are detailed as well as a comparison with windtunnel and CFD data taken from the litterature.
