StaticTrim
- class sharpy.solvers.statictrim.StaticTrim[source]
The
StaticTrim
solver determines the longitudinal state of trim (equilibrium) for an aeroelastic system in static conditions. It wraps around the desired solver to yield the state of trim of the system, in most cases theStaticCoupled
solver.It calculates the required angle of attack, elevator deflection and thrust required to achieve longitudinal equilibrium. The output angles are shown in degrees.
The results from the trimming iteration can be saved to a text file by using the save_info option.
The settings that this solver accepts are given by a dictionary, with the following key-value pairs:
