Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A piloted simulation study to evaluate a recently proposed pilot-vehicle metric: Power frequency
by Schulze, Philip Chase, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 73; 1511390
Abstract (Summary)

A new pilot-vehicle metric has recently been proposed, power frequency, that combines cutoff frequency with a scaling factor based on the maximum power of a power spectral density analysis. A piloted simulation study was performed to collect both flight data and qualitative pilot ratings for a number of different vehicle configurations. The collected data was used to do two things: examine how time-varying power frequency compares with time-varying cutoff frequency when examining pilot stick activity and intent, and to examine possible correlations between the pilot's dynamics, handling qualities ratings, and technique to the proposed power frequency metric.
