Abstract

The properties of the phugoid and the height mode that form the longitudinal long-term modes in super- and hypersonic flight were studied. The significance of height mode for the dynamics of aircraft was also discussed. The findings for the plugoid and the height mode were confirmed by the results obtained in flight tests and by solutions for the complete equations of motion. The unique properties of the phugoid and the height mode particularly concern the substantial effects of altitude-dependent forces and moments as well as the reduction of the speed-related influence.
