From Eq. 214) The solution for the time derivatives of the quaternion as functions of the quaternion and the body axis rotation rates is also used in aerospace problems describing rotational dynamics. The following describes a very interesting application of the derivative of the quaternion as developed by Carroll in Ref. 16. Using this quaternion algebra applied to 4 x 4 matrix operations, we can start with A- given in Eq. 120). Analogous to Eq. 173), the 4 x 4 matrix relationship is Purchased from American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics GEOMETRIC CONCEPTS 51 Using Eq.

93) Notice that the arctangent function is used so that the expressions will be valid even when possible discontinuous angular situations occur. , from 0 to 360 deg. This can be accomplished by selecting the software arctangent function that yields the angular range, 0 to ±TT . Then, if the angle occurs between 0 and — TT, simply add 2n to its value and the Euler angle range between 0 and 2n is achieved. Similiar equations can be written for each of the 12 three-axis Euler rotational sequences.

5-6). We can write Eq. (1 . 173) From this analysis, we can conclude that the derivative of a transformation matrix is equal to itself times a skew-symmetric matrix. However, the elements of the W matrix need to be defined. 174) x = (d)x which is illustrated in Fig. 15. A very short time later, say, t + 8t (where 8t is a small variationjn time), the x coordinate frame axes are displaced and are represented by the x coordinate frame (Ref. 13, Sec. 4-7). 175) where the ij\ and k are the unit vectors along the x axes.
