Library

Mass Properties

Description

The Estimate Inertia Tensor block calculates the inertia tensor and the rate of change of the inertia tensor.

Linear interpolation is used to estimate the inertia tensor as a function of mass. The rate of change of the inertia tensor is a linear function of rate of change of mass.

Dialog Box

Full mass

Specifies the gross mass of the craft.

Empty mass

Specifies the empty mass of the craft.

Full inertia matrix

Specifies the inertia tensor at gross mass of the craft.

Empty inertia matrix

Specifies the inertia tensor at empty mass of the craft.
