Abstract

This paper examines control-relevant modeling issues for a class of scramjet-powered hypersonic vehicles. A simple nonlinear 3DOF model is used to illustrate the main ideas. Two different plume modeling methodologies from previous literature are compared to a newly developed methodology. The impact of the modeling method on vehicle design has been examined. Nominal control design robustness issues are also addressed.
