## Abstract

Safety and economy are primary concerns in the study of ground manoeuvres for commercial aircraft, the ultimate goal being automation and optimisation of taxi operations. The application of mathematical and computer modeling to this problem is beneficial clue to the relative costs compared with actual tests. As an example of utilising mathematical tools in the investigation of industrial problems we make use of a computer model of a passenger aircraft to perform a bifurcation analysis of turning solutions. In particular, we study how altering the longitudinal centre of gravity position of an aircraft affects its ground dynamics.
