Effect of G-force on Pilot in Multi-Step Multi-Axis Manoeuvre

Piotr Lichota , Ryszard Maroński


System identification (Sys-Id) is a process in which a mathematical model of an object is determined on the basis of input and output signals. In the modern aviation this approach is used for e.g. obtaining aerodynamic databases, performing fault-diagnosis and reconfiguration, designing flight control laws, expanding flight envelope, verifying wind-tunnel tests. In the Sys-Id an aircraft is excited with specific inputs, the response of the object is registered and then the system parameters are estimated. In the typical approach one flight control surface is deflected to excite the aircraft motion that results in time and money consuming procedure. In order to shorten the flight test-campaign time and cost it is possible to design a manoeuver in which more flight surfaces (ailerons, elevator and rudder) are simultaneously deflected in a way which does not reduce the quality of the estimates. Moreover, from the practical application point of view the resulting G-force that acts on the pilot cannot lead to a harm in his organism. This topic is briefly discussed in the following paper
