Title: Design of a microprocessor-controlled shear warning device for general aviation aircraft
Authors: Samaka, Muhammad B.
Issue Date: 1984
Publisher: © Muhammad Samaka
Abstract: Wind-shear is a spatial or temporal gradient in wind speed and/or direction, and is generally associated with the presence of cold and warm fronts and thunderstorm cells. It is a serious hazard in the terminal stages of flight for all aircraft but for light aircraft in particular. The research work presented in this dissertation concerns the design of a wind-shear detection system which involved the application of estimation theory and digital simulation techniques. The wind-shear detection system was designed after a careful study of the results obtained from a digital simulation of an aircraft landing phase, including the effects of wind-shear. [Continues.]
