Flight Parameters

Analyze vehicle flight dynamics and motion in MATLAB® using aerospace flight parameters

Estimate aerodynamic flight parameters, such as airspeed, incidence and sideslip angles, Mach number, and relative pressure, density, and temperature ratios.


airspeedAirspeed from velocity
alphabetaCompute incidence and sideslip angles
correctairspeedConvert airspeeds between equivalent airspeed (EAS), calibrated airspeed (CAS), or true airspeed (TAS)
dpressureCompute dynamic pressure using velocity and density
machnumberCompute Mach number using velocity and speed of sound
rrdeltaCompute relative pressure ratio
rrsigmaCompute relative density ratio
rrthetaCompute relative temperature ratio
