INS/CNS/GNSS Integrated Navigation Technology

This publication not just introduces the foundations of INS, CNS and GNSS, the similar filters and semi-physical simulation, but in addition systematically discusses the major applied sciences wanted for built-in navigations of INS/GNSS, INS/CNS, and INS/CNS/GNSS, respectively. INS/CNS/GNSS built-in navigation know-how has demonstrated itself as a good software for designated positioning navigation, which may make complete use of the complementary features of alternative navigation sub-systems and enormously enhance the accuracy and reliability of the built-in navigation process.

33 below the elastic limit. 5. 4 A rectangular element in a linearly elastic, isotropic material is subjected to tensile stresses of 83 and 65 N/mm2 on mutually perpendicular planes. Determine the strain in the direction of each stress and in the direction perpendicular to both stresses. Find also the principal strains, the maximum shear stress, the maximum shear strain, and their directions at the point. 3. See Ex. 1. 52), 1 ex ¼ ð83 À 0:3 Â 65Þ ¼ 3:175 Â 10À4 200; 000 ey ¼ 1 ð65 À 0:3 Â 83Þ ¼ 2:005 Â 10À4 200; 000 ez ¼ À0:3 ð83 þ 65Þ ¼ À2:220 Â 10À4 200; 000 In this case, since there are no shear stresses on the given planes, sx and sy are principal stresses, so that ex and ey are the principal strains and are in the directions of sx and sy.

This value is predicted by simple beam theory (Chapter 16) and does not include the contribution to deflection of the shear strain. This was eliminated when we assumed that the slope of the neutral plane at the built-in end was zero. A more detailed examination of this effect is instructive. The shear strain at any point in the beam is given by Eq. 17): gxy ¼ À P ðb2 À 4y2 Þ 8IG and is obviously independent of x. Therefore, at all points on the neutral plane, the shear strain is constant and equal to gxy ¼ À Pb2 8IG which amounts to a rotation of the neutral plane, as shown in Fig.

Timoshenko and Goodier1 consider a variety of polynomials for f and determine the associated loading conditions for a variety of rectangular sheets. Some of these cases are quoted here. 1 Consider the stress function f ¼ Ax2 þ Bxy þ Cy2 where A, B, and C are constants. 9) is identically satisfied, since each term becomes zero on substituting for f. The stresses follow from sx ¼ @2f ¼ 2C @y2 sy ¼ @2f ¼ 2A @x2 txy ¼ À @2f ¼ ÀB @x @y To produce these stresses at any point in a rectangular sheet, we require loading conditions providing the boundary stresses shown in Fig.
