Chadli, M, Aouaouda, S, Karimi, Hamid Reza and Shi, Peng (2013) Robust fault tolerant tracking controller design for a VTOL aircraft. Journal of the Franklin Institute, 350 (9). pp. 2627-2645. ISSN 0016-0032


In the last three decades, the need for increased flight safety and aircraft reliability has been and will continue to be an important issue in commercial aviation industry. All pilots undergo widespread training to help them to be able to react to unexpected difficulties that may occur during a flight in uncertain conditions. Furthermore, advanced fault-tolerant control (FTC) systems are designed to help pilots overcome abnormal situations that previously might have resulted in catastrophic events.
