"The bank angle kept on increasing with altitude loss and reached a maximum of 64.95 degrees i.e 15 seconds after the auto pilot disengagement and altitude loss of 735 ft from the assigned flight level.
In Figures 1 and 2, d is the bus width; h is the vertical distance from the sprung mass CG to the assumed roll axis; [gamma] is the yaw rate; [beta] is the bus's slip angle; [delta] is the steering wheel angle; [F.sub.xfl, xfr] are the front left and the front right longitudinal forces; [F.sub.yfl, yfr] are the front left and the front right lateral forces; af and ar are the front tire's slip angle and rear tire's angle; and finally, [[phi].sub.b] and [[phi].sub.v] are the road bank angle and the vehicle roll angle, respectively.
The aerodynamic forces have to be projected in the RV frame with a rotation about the bank angle around the second axis:
Varying bank angle and speeds can make huge differences you can apply to hit your high key target and continue as planned.
As can been seen from the nonlinear equations (9), the state of bank angle rate of rotation p and sideslip angle rate of rotation r plays an important role in the severe nonlinearity and response divergence of the original dynamics.

The combination of the C-17 landing long and our lack of an accurate time hack caused the crew to attempt to land in wake turbulence which resulted in a high bank angle indication and a low right wing at around 50 feet above the ground.
Based on the simulation conducted, the Boeing 777 had exhausted all its fuel in the right engine that was followed by flameout of the left engine with no control inputs." "This scenario resulted in the aircraft entering a descending spiralling low bank angle left turn and the aircraft entering the water in a relatively short distance after the last engine flameout," the report highlighted.
It features a wide bank angle, which lowers the center of gravity, and allows the ancillaries to be packaged atop the block.
An AOA system's output will help pilots maintain aircraft control "regardless of weight, airspeed, bank angle, density altitude, configuration, or center of gravity," Oord said.
A ball-bank test determines centrifugal force, vehicle roll potential, and bank angle around curves.
The entry from an altitude of 120 km begins with a fixed angle of attack and a zero bank angle (a higher bank angle brings trajectory closer to heat rate constraint).
