Abstract

The broad objective of the design is to reproduce the sensed motion (angular velocity and specific force) as accurately as possible without causing the simulator (cab) excursions to exceed specified limits. A performance criterion is established that weights mangitude and direction errors in specific force and in angular velocity and attempts to maintain the excursion within set limits by penalizing excessive excursions. A FORTRAN routine for realizing the washout law was developed and typical time-histories using the washout routine were simulated for a range of parameters in the penalty-and weighting-functions. These time histories and the listing of the routine are included in the report.
