alphabeta

Incidence and sideslip angles

Syntax

[incidence sideslip] = alphabeta(velocities)

Description

[incidence sideslip] = alphabeta(velocities) computes m incidence and sideslip angles, incidence and sideslip , between the velocity vector and the body. velocities is an m-by-3 array of velocities in body axes. incidence and sideslip are in radians.

Examples

Determine the incidence and sideslip angles for velocity for one array:

[alpha beta] = alphabeta([84.3905  33.7562  10.1269])

alpha =

    0.1194


beta =

    0.3780

Determine the incidence and sideslip angles for velocity for two arrays:

[alpha beta] = alphabeta([50 20 6; 5 0.5 2])

alpha =

    0.1194
    0.3805

beta =

    0.3780
    0.0926
