Translational Motion of Aerospace Vehicles
To introduce analytical (Newtonian) dynamics useful in flight dynamic derivations and analyses.
To offer the tools for a rigorous derivation of the translational motion model.
To establish a relationship between translational and rotational dynamics of a flight vehicle.
To present the basic kinetic equations of aerospace flight, covering dynamics in moving frames, variable mass bodies, the N-body gravitational problem in space dynamics, and its specialization to two-body trajectories with analytical and numerical solutions.
