Based on the discussions above in terms of the effects of nonlinear aerodynamics to the LCO deflection, to the bifurcation diagrams and effects of each nonlinear aerodynamic term, here a comparison between the available literature results and the present work is presented.
Only recent numerical studies account for the motion of the vehicle in the aerodynamics. In [8], the motion was imposed using the Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian (ALE) approach to alter the aerodynamic domain for the yaw motion and the Navier-Stokes equations were expressed in a non-inertial reference frame to consider lateral translation.
