Procedures for the design and training of a radial basis function network to represent dynamic aerodynamic data are outlined. The local support of the radial basis function network approximation allows new information from a dynamic maneuver to be considered, while retaining knowledge in regions not visited. The design procedure includes both the fc-means clustering and extended Kalman filter algorithms for nodal parameter determination. The training procedure uses an input-space distance criterion to incorporate new information into the training set. The optimal number of network nodes is investigated through generalization ability. Numerical experimentation indicates that networks designed and trained with these algorithms learn locally and generalize to new data.
