I need to simulate a 6 DOF missile/rocket using Matlab Simulink. Does
anyone have any recommendations on (a) books to read or (b) other
material that would be of use (e.g. web tutorials)?
Put the question to
especially if its that sort of rocket. Literature for that:
Mandell, Caporaso, Bengen "Topics in Advanced Model Rocketry" MIT
600 pages, reasonably practical. Simplified since it doesn´t assume
For "Saturn V"-type there were a lot of books published in the 60ies:
Greensite "Analysis and Design of Space Vehicle Flight Control
Vol II Spartan
About 700 pages, but only half of the book on the launch vehicle.
Blakelock "Automatic Control of Aircarft and Missile" Wiley 1991
If its a small military missile:
Garnell, East "Guided Weapon Control Systems" Pergamon 1977
About 280 pages.
Parts of it are in
Lee, "Guided Weapons. Including light, unguided, anti-tank weapons"
Brasseys Vol XIII 1983
A chapter on simulation and much more in the book:
Eichblatt "Test and Evaluation of the Tactical Missile" AIAA Vol 119
