An accelerometer is a device that measures proper acceleration.
Adverse yaw is the natural and undesirable tendency for an aircraft to yaw in the opposite direction of a roll.
An aircraft in flight is free to rotate in three dimensions: yaw, nose left or right about an axis running up and down; pitch, nose up or down about an axis running from wing to wing; and roll, rotation about an axis running from nose to tail.
In physics, the angular velocity of a particle is the rate at which it rotates around a chosen center point: that is, the time rate of change of its angular displacement relative to the origin.
Basic fighter maneuvers (BFM) are tactical movements performed by fighter aircraft during air combat maneuvering (also called ACM, or dogfighting), in order to gain a positional advantage over the opponent.
In physics, the center of mass of a distribution of mass in space is the unique point where the weighted relative position of the distributed mass sums to zero, or the point where if a force is applied it moves in the direction of the force without rotating.
In physics, the Coriolis force is an inertial force that acts on objects that are in motion relative to a rotating reference frame.
Damping is an influence within or upon an oscillatory system that has the effect of reducing, restricting or preventing its oscillations.
Directional stability is stability of a moving body or vehicle about an axis which is perpendicular to its direction of motion.
Electronic stability control (ESC), also referred to as electronic stability program (ESP) or dynamic stability control (DSC), is a computerized technology that improves a vehicle's stability by detecting and reducing loss of traction (skidding).
Flight dynamics is the study of the performance, stability, and control of vehicles flying through the air or in outer space.
In differential geometry, the Frenet–Serret formulas describe the kinematic properties of a particle moving along a continuous, differentiable curve in three-dimensional Euclidean space ℝ3, or the geometric properties of the curve itself irrespective of any motion.
A gyroscope (from Ancient Greek γῦρος gûros, "circle" and σκοπέω skopéō, "to look") is a device used for measuring or maintaining orientation and angular velocity.
In numerous fields of study, the component of instability within a system is generally characterized by some of the outputs or internal states growing without bounds.
In physics, a moment is an expression involving the product of a distance and a physical quantity, and in this way it accounts for how the physical quantity is located or arranged.
In mathematics, a moving frame is a flexible generalization of the notion of an ordered basis of a vector space often used to study the extrinsic differential geometry of smooth manifolds embedded in a homogeneous space.
Six degrees of freedom (6DoF) refers to the freedom of movement of a rigid body in three-dimensional space.
Steering is the collection of components, linkages, etc.
Torque, moment, or moment of force is rotational force.
For vehicles such as cars, vehicle dynamics is the study of how the vehicle will react to driver inputs on a given road.
In both road and rail vehicles, the wheelbase is the distance between the centers of the front and rear wheels.
A yaw-rate sensor is a gyroscopic device that measures a vehicle’s angular velocity around its vertical axis.
