Incidence & Airspeed

Calculate incidence and airspeed


Flight Parameters


The Incidence & Airspeed block supports the 3DoF equations of motion model by calculating the angle between the velocity vector and the body, and also the total airspeed from the velocity components in the body-fixed coordinate frame.


Inputs and Outputs

InputDimension TypeDescription


Two-element vector Contains the velocity of the body resolved into the body-fixed coordinate frame.
OutputDimension TypeDescription


 Contains the incidence angle, in radians.


 Contains the airspeed of the body.


See the Aerodynamics & Equations of Motion subsystem of the aeroblk_guidance_airframe model for examples of this block.
