A numerical method is developed to evaluate the dynamic stability parameters of aircraft. This method is based on the aerodynamic model proposed by Etkin. His model is analyzed and generalized. After giving the specific forms of the aerodynamic model, the dynamic stability parameters are determined by the unsteady flow field computation and a parameter identification technique. Numerical experiments show that this method is accurate in predicting the dynamic stability characteristics of blunt cones in hypersonic flight.
