# APPLICATIONS

The computation of the LFT models of the missile and transport aircraft is detailed in this chapter.

1. THE MISSILE

1.1 A PHYSICAL REPRESENTATION

In the same way as at the end of the previous chapter, the parametric uncertainties in the stability derivatives are directly introduced in the physical missile model. Figure 4.1 represents equations (2.11) of the linearized missile model, with multiplicative uncertainties Si being introduced in the stability derivatives MQ, Ms, Za and Zs (i. e. MQ is e. g. replaced by (1 – t – 6)Ма). Note that the tail deflection input £ is renamed as и in this figure, in order to avoid any ambiguity with the vector <5 of parametric uncertainties.

The LFT model of the missile is obtained as:

(4.1)

where Д = diag(6, 62,63,64) and His) is the transfer in Figure 4.1 between inputs [u, mi, m2, m3, W4] and outputs [77, q, z, Z2, 23, 24]. This LFT model is minimal.

For the sake of simplicity, only uncertainties in the 4 stability derivatives were introduced above. Nevertheless, it would be possible to introduce uncertainties in the other physical parameters in Figure 4.1. It is worth emphasizing that the missile equations (2.11) are affine with respect to uncertainties in the 4 stability derivatives Ma, Ms, Za, Zs – However, they are no more affine when considering additional uncertain-
