Incidence & Airspeed
Calculate incidence and airspeed
Aerospace Blockset / Flight Parameters
The Incidence & Airspeed block supports the 3DoF equations of motion model by calculating the angle between the velocity vector and the body, and also the total airspeed from the velocity components in the body-fixed coordinate frame.
U, w — Velocity
Velocity of the body, specified as a two-element vector, resolved into the body-fixed coordinate frame.
ɑ — Incidence angle
Incidence angle, returned as a scalar, in radians.
V — Airspeed
Airspeed of the body, returned as a scalar.
