Modelling and Simulation
From the classroom to the simulator, the challenge is to bring the knowledge gained in flight dynamics, fluid mechanics, propulsion, acoustics and aircraft performance and apply them to the virtual world. The ultimate aim within this field is to create a fully student designed and programmed simulation within C++. The initial stages of the project will see a number of 3rd Year Individual projects working in conjunction to create the various simulation components to integrate within Flight Gear. Once the behaviour is tested and validated, each section will be assembled to form the simulation environment. This modelling and simulation will be undertaken by 3rd Year student with their Individual projects, they will be overseen by experienced senior members and each year specific sections will be passed along until they are completed to satisfactory level.
