Abstract : The six degrees of freedom dynamic equations of aircraft motion are documented for use in aircraft simulations at ARL. Earth axes are chosen for the integration of the force equations, and body axes for the integration of the moment equations. The use of quaternions to calculate aircraft attitude and associated direction cosines is described. A brief description of an atmospheric data subroutine for use in aircraft simulation is also included. (Author)
