Detailed Analysis

CourseMarks Score®

9.3 / 10

CourseMarks Score® helps students to find the best classes. We aggregate 18 factors, including freshness, student feedback and content diversity.

Freshness Score

9.9 / 10
This course was last updated on 3/2021.

Course content can become outdated quite quickly. After analysing 71,530 courses, we found that the highest rated courses are updated every year. If a course has not been updated for more than 2 years, you should carefully evaluate the course before enrolling.

Student Feedback

8.2 / 10
We analyzed factors such as the rating (4.4/5) and the ratio between the number of reviews and the number of students, which is a great signal of student commitment.

New courses are hard to evaluate because there are no or just a few student ratings, but Student Feedback Score helps you find great courses even with fewer reviews.

Content Score

9.1 / 10
Video Score: 8.6 / 10
The course includes 6h 42m video content. Courses with more videos usually have a higher average rating. We have found that the sweet spot is 16 hours of video, which is long enough to teach a topic comprehensively, but not overwhelming. Courses over 16 hours of video gets the maximum score.
The average video length is 3 hours 30 minutes of 4 Flight Computer courses on Udemy.

Description

Flight dynamics is undergoing a shift from vectors to tensors, taking advantage of the ever increasing computer power to design and analyze complex aerospace systems. The physics are modeled by tensors independent of coordinate systems. Then the tensors are converted to matrices by introducing coordinate systems and evaluated by one of the many matrix computer tools.
This course introduces the novice to tensor flight dynamics, requiring only basic skills in matrix algebra and differential equations. The fundamentals of tensor algebra are introduced by modeling geometrical relationships of expended boosters landing on barges with their related coordinate transformations. As time enters the study, the new rotational time derivative enables kinematics to be formulated independent of coordinate systems in a truly tensorial format, applied to pilots in centrifuges and attitude determination of aircraft. Point-mass trajectories, also called three-degrees-of freedom trajectories, are derived for rockets, hypersonic vehicles, UAVs; and full-up, six-degrees-of-freedom equations lead to the evaluation of the transient responses of missiles and aircraft in state-space format.
The course is supported by the text book “Introduction to Tensor Flight Dynamics”, published in 2020 by the instructor at Amazon. It provides more details on how to derive the equations of motion from Newton’s and Euler’s laws and features many problems derived from aerospace applications, some of them to be solved with MATLAB® or other matrix processors.

Requirements

• Experienced in matrix algebra and first course in differential equations

You will learn

✓ After completing the course the student will have mastered the fundamentals of the innovative tensor approach to flight dynamics, with hands-on experience in deriving the equations of motions of missiles, rockets, UAVs, aircraft, and hypersonic vehicles, while computing their trajectories and dynamic responses with modern computer tools like MATLAB®.
