Abstract
One of the two objectives of this bachelor thesis is the development of a set of problems to be solved with an optimal control numerical method and evaluate the obtained results. The problems to be solved have been selected from the literature, which from now on are going to be named ’canonical problems’. These problems are used by authors in the field of optimal control in order to compare their results between them and assess the strength of the optimization method they are using. The second objective of this thesis is the development of four problems, related with climb, cruise and descend performance of a general twin turbofan airliner, applying the numerical method in question, and evaluating the results. This is then a manner to apply optimal control into more common problems in the aerospace field.
