Abstract : The volume is designed as a textbook for students in higher technical institutes specializing in gyroscopic instrumentation. It sets forth applied gyroscope theory, the fundamentals of the theory of gyroscopic instruments used in stabilization and control systems for moving vehicles, and the working principles, design peculiarities and methodical and certain instrumental errors of single-rotor gyroscopic instruments. Considerable attention is devoted to explaining the physical essence of the gyroscopic phenomena. For a better understanding of the theoretical propositions, the book cites a large number of examples that will aid the reader in familiarizing himself with the subject on his own. Scientists, engineers and technicians concerned with gyroscopic devices will also find this book useful. (Author)
