The primary goal of the study has been the development of a unified set of analytical methods which would provide the capability to calculate the stability and control characteristics of an arbitrary STOL aircraft configuration that might employ the internally ducted jet flap, externally blown jet flap, or a mechanical high lift system with vectored thrust. This volume presents the complete theoretical development of the relevant analytical methods. In addition, it presents comparisons of these methods with other analytical solutions and with experimental data.
