Abstract

The damping derivatives associated with the pitching, yawing, and rolling motion of the SAGITTA flying wing configuration at low Mach number conditions are presented. A tailless variant of the configuration and a variant with attached double vertical tail are investigated. The damping derivatives are determined by means of the aerodynamic response to forced harmonic oscillations. The required data for the determination of the damping derivatives are obtained from time-accurate Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes computations. The calculation methodology for the pitch-, yaw-, and roll-damping derivatives for arbitrary freestream conditions is described and a short evaluation of the approach is presented. Angle of attack and sideslip angle trends as well as the effect of the double vertical tail on the dynamic stability are investigated. The damping derivative of every considered type of motion exhibits significant non-linearities with respect to the freestream condition for angles of attack larger than $$8^\circ$$ 8 ∘ . The pitch-damping and roll-damping derivative indicate a dynamically stable behavior at all considered freestream conditions for the configuration with and without vertical tail. The yaw-damping characteristic is more critical. Both configurations exhibit unstable behavior at several freestream conditions. The vertical tail, however, considerably improves the yaw-damping characteristic of the SAGITTA configuration.
