Convert from Euler Angles to Direction Cosine Matrix

Description

EA2DCM converts from Euler Angles (EA) to Direction Cosine Matrix (DCM).

Usage

1
2
EA2DCM(EA, EulerOrder='zyx', tol = 10 * .Machine$double.eps, ichk = FALSE, 
ignoreAllChk = FALSE)

Arguments

EA

Euler Angles (EA) vector [psi, theta, phi].

EulerOrder

Euler Order (xyx, yzy, zxz, xzx, yxy, zyz, xyz, yzx, zxy, xzy, yxz, zyx)

tol

Tolerance from deviations from unity for the determinant of rotation matrices or the the vector length for unitary vectors.

ichk

Logical, FALSE=disables near-singularity warnings.

ignoreAllChk

Logical, TRUE=disables all warnings and error checks (use with caution!).

Details

Euler Angles (EA) xyz <=> x(roll) y(pitch) z(yaw) Type 1 Rotations (Tait-Bryan angles): xyz - xzy - yxz - yzx - zyx - zxy Singular if second rotation angle is -90 or 90 degrees. Type 2 Rotations (proper Euler angles): xyx - xzx - yxy - yzy - zxz - zyz Singular if second rotation angle is 0 or 180 degrees.

Euler angles [psi, theta, phi] range from -90 to 90 degrees. Tait-Bryan angles [psi, theta, phi] range from 0 to 180 degrees. Angles about Euler vectors range from 0 to 180 degrees.

Value

Direction Cosine Matrix (DCM) 3x3xN.
