Synopsis

Atmospheric and Space Flight Dynamics Modeling and Simulation with MATLAB and Simulink by Ashish Tewari

This book offers a unified presentation that does not discriminate between atmospheric and space flight. It demonstrates that the two disciplines have evolved from the same set of physical principles and introduces a broad range of critical concepts in an accessible, yet mathematically rigorous presentation. The book presents many MATLAB and Simulink-based numerical examples and real-world simulations. Replete with illustrations, end-of-chapter exercises, and selected solutions, the work is primarily useful as a textbook for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate-level students.

Reviews

This book combines in a unified presentation both atmospheric and space flight dynamics in an introductory but rather broad level. The approach followed is very interesting and is well-suited to either teaching undergraduate students or complementing first-year graduate students. In fifteen chapters, topics like orbital mechanics, including some perturbations and details about the restricted three-body problem, rocket propulsion, atmospheric and transatmospheric trajectories, attitude and control are considered in a clear presentation. This condensed book even has some introductory explanations of kinematics and nice details about modeling the planetary atmosphere or the Earth's gravitational field, which makes it self-contained. The approach followed in each chapter is useful and direct with a list of objectives, many worked examples, exercises and a final summary. Another interesting fact is that the book contains the implementation of the computations, in the way suggested by the author, using MATLAB code. This provides a distinct interpretation of formulae; moreover, it is not an obstruction for non-MATLAB users since the code is easy and easily movable to other programming languages. -Mathematical Reviews This is a textbook for both undergraduate and graduate students studying aerospace and astronautics engineering. In fact the book is unique as it treats both atmospheric and space flights, namely, aircrafts and spacecrafts...Each chapter starts with aims and objectives and ends with a short summary and exercises which are solved by using MATLAB and Simulink codes. -Zentralblatt MATH
