Determine Direction Cosine Matrix from One Angle of Attack
This example shows how to determine the direction cosine matrix from one angle of attack.
alpha = 0.4363; dcm = dcmbody2stability(alpha)
dcm = 3×3 0.9063 0 0.4226 0 1.0000 0 -0.4226 0 0.9063
Determine Direction Cosine Matrix from Multiple Angles of Attack
This example shows how to determine the direction cosine matrix from multiple angles of attack.
alpha = [0.4363 0.1745]; dcm = dcmbody2stability(alpha)
dcm = dcm(:,:,1) = 0.9063 0 0.4226 0 1.0000 0 -0.4226 0 0.9063 dcm(:,:,2) = 0.9848 0 0.1736 0 1.0000 0 -0.1736 0 0.9848
anglesOfAttack — Angles of attack
Angles of attack, specified as a vector, in radians.
dcm — Direction cosine matrices
Direction cosine matrices, returned as a 3-by-3-by-m matrix, where m is the number of direction cosine matrices. The direction cosine matrix performs the coordinate transformation of a vector in inertial axes to a vector in body axes.
