To bridge the gap between model-based fault diagnosis theory and the industry practice, a linear parameter varying H_/H∞ fault estimation approach is applied to a high fidelity nonlinear aircraft benchmark, to deal with the various actuator fault detection scenarios which can result in the abnormal aircraft configuration. To facilitate the industry calculating the computational load of the fault estimation approach, the design is fully coded using the flight control computer software library. Furthermore, the robustness performance of the fault estimation approach is evaluated using the parametric simulation and the Monte Carlo campaign supported by a functioning engineering simulator despite the aerodynamic database uncertainties and measurements errors over a wide range of the flight envelope.
