October 29, 2018: "Recent System Identification Research at NASA Langley Research Center"


  • October 29, 2018
  • 4:00 p.m.
  • 320 New Classroom Building
  • Jared Grauer, NASA Langley Research Center
  • Faculty Host: Dr. Craig Woolsey
  • Abstract: This presentation will focus on aircraft system identification, which is the process of determining useful mathematical models of systems from measured flight test data and other information.  This subject will be briefly introduced, and then recent case studies investigated at NASA Langley Research Center will be discussed, including subscale models, unusual configurations, real-time modeling, and flexible aircraft.

    Bio: Dr. Jared Grauer is a research aerospace engineer within the Dynamic Systems and Control Branch at NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia.  Over the last eight years, his research there has focused on the system identification of aircraft, which has included subscale models and unusual configurations, real-time modeling, and flexible aircraft with aeroelastic interactions.  Before this, he earned a Ph.D. from the University of Maryland working on modeling and control of flapping-wing aircraft.  He is an associate fellow of the AIAA and a member of the Atmospheric Flight Mechanics technical committee.
