A simple mechanical analogue for studying the dynamic stability of aircraft having nonlinear moment characteristics
Description: "The analogy between a ball rolling over a contoured surface and a pitching and yawing aircraft is developed. Test results from a model representing a missile with linear moment characteristics are presented to verify the analogy. Several examples of the behavior of nonlinear systems are also given" (p. 1).
