Dr. Kayacan enjoys giving lectures on flight dynamics and control theory, intelligent control and learning control techniques.
MA3703 Flight Dynamics (Undergrad 3rd year)
The course aims to teach students about the theories behind the dynamics of aircraft flight and their impacts on the aircraft design. Kinematics and dynamics equations of the aircraft flight are derived using the integration of dynamics principle and knowledge of aerodynamics and propulsion forces involved. Stability of the aircraft and the effects of aircraft controls on the overall dynamics are discussed. Both static and dynamic flight stability and control will be covered. Effects of relevant aircraft parameters on flight dynamic characteristics are highlighted.
