TL;DR: In this article, the dynamics of atmospheric flight, with special reference to the stability and control of airplanes, are discussed. But the authors focus on human pilots and handling qualities and flight in turbulence, with numerical examples for a jet transport.
Abstract: : The book treats the dynamics of atmospheric flight, with special reference to the stability and control of airplanes. An extensive set of numerical examples covers STOL airplane, subsonic jet transport, hypersonic airplane, stability augmentation, and wind and density gradients. The book completely covers equations of motion, including effects of round rotating Earth and distortional motion. There are complete chapters on human pilots and handling qualities and flight in turbulence, with numerical examples for a jet transport. Small-perturbation equations for longitudinal and lateral motion are presented in convenient matrix forms, both in time domain and Laplace transforms, dimensional and non-dimensional. (Author)

TL;DR: The Boeing Blended-Wing Body (BWB) airplane concept represents a potential breakthrough in subsonic transport efficiency as discussed by the authors, and work began on this concept via a study to demonstrate feasibility and begin development of this new class of airplane.
Abstract: The Boeing Blended-Wing-Body (BWB) airplane concept represents a potential breakthrough in subsonic transport efficiency. Work began on this concept via a study to demonstrate feasibility and begin development of this new class of airplane. In this initial study, 800-passenger BWB and conventional configuration airplanes were sized and compared for a 7000-n mile design range. Both airplanes were based on engine and structural (composite) technology for a 2010 entry into service

TL;DR: A systematic procedure is developed for the calculation of the structural response of an airplane subject to dynamic loads, with particular attention given to determining the stresses developed due to flight through gusts.
Abstract: A systematic procedure is developed for the calculation of the structural response of an airplane subject to dynamic loads. Particular attention is given the problem of determining the stresses developed due to flight through gusts. Difference equivalents for derivatives and matrix notation are used to develop a recurrence relation that permits step-by-step calculation of the response and of the loads that occur on the structure. The chief feature of this recurrence approach is that the generality and physical aspects of the basic equilibrium relations of the problem are preserved without loss of ease in application. The use of difference equivalents for derivatives in the solution of dynamic problems is first illustrated by means of a simple damped oscillator example, and the application to the flexible aircraft structure is then made. For brevity, the case of wing bending and vertical motion of the airplane is treated, although the method may be readily extended to take into account also wing torsional deformations, pitching motion of the airplane, fuselage deflections, and tail forces of known character. Either a sharp-edge gust or a gust of arbitrary shape in the spanwise or flight directions may be treated. Some results obtained by application of the recurrence matrix relation are presented, and the advantages of this method over other methods of evaluating the dynamic response of an aircraft are discussed.
