MetadataShow full item record
The development of a dynamic computational model capable of predicting, with the requisite design certainty, the transient thermal response of jet vane thrust control systems has been undertaken. The modeling and simulation procedures utilized are based on the concept that the thermal processes associated with jet vane operation can be put into a transfer function form commonly found in the discipline of automatic controls. Well established system identification methods are employed to formulate and verify the relationships between the various gains and frequencies of the transfer function model and experimental data provided by Naval Weapons Center, China Lake.
