This paper clarified the contribution of front wing and rear wing to the longitudinal aerodynamic derivative by analyzing the characteristics of tandem wing aircraft. By combining the structure and aerodynamic simulation data of the aircraft, the aerodynamic derivative can be directly solved through simplification of force without introducing the tail capacity V H , and the longitudinal short-period (control) transfer function of the tandem wing aircraft can be obtained by substituting the

This transfer function can be used to build the control system in Simulink. When the input signal is the same, the short-period response of the system has high goodness of fit with the value measured in flight test. Therefore, the longitudinal aerodynamic model of the aircraft is well verified, and it can be used for the design of the aircraft controller and its aerodynamic shape. The modeling method and the verification method are applicable to fixed-wing aircraft including tandem wing aircraft.
