“Linear and Nonlinear Control of Small-Scale Unmanned Helicopters (Intelligent Systems, Control and Automation: Science and Engineering)” Book Review: This book deals with designing flight controllers of small scale unmanned helicopters. The book is designed for students and researchers interested in development of flight controllers. It gives a step by step guide on designing, evaluation and implementing efficient flight controllers. The book illustrates linear and non-linear models of ordinary differential equations. It also discusses the helicopter equations of motion along with the main rotor’s mechanism, aerodynamics and dynamics.

6. “Theory of Adaptive Fiber Composites: From Piezoelectric Material Behavior to Dynamics of Rotating Structures (Solid Mechanics and Its Applications)” by T H Brockmann

“Theory of Adaptive Fiber Composites: From Piezoelectric Material Behavior to Dynamics of Rotating Structures (Solid Mechanics and Its Applications)” Book Review: This book discusses the theory of adaptive fiber composites. These composites are obtained by combining actuation and sensing capabilities of piezoelectric materials with fiber composites. Adaptive fiber composites are also useful for noise and vibration reduction. The book also discusses the occurring oscillations which are reduced by coupling of aerodynamics via fast manipulation. It also discusses sensing properties used in determining the current state of deformation.
