Date of Defense 1985-05-05 Availability restricted AbstractThe method of singular—perturbation analysis is applied
to the determination of range-fuel—time optimal aircraft
The problem is shown to break down into three sub-problems
which are studied separately. In particular, the inner layer
containing the altitude path-angle dynamics is analyzed in
detail. The outer solutions are discussed in an earlier work.
