Hill, P. and Peterson, C. • Emerging Power Batteries

  23. Constraint Analysis & Diagrams • Performance Constraints • Basic Assumptions • Constraint Diagrams Constraint Analysis performed on: • Boeing 757 • Hybrid Blended Body Concept • AsymmetricTwin Fuselage Concept

  24. Major Performance Constraints • Top of Climb • Drag of Aircraft, AR • Sustained Subsonic 2G Maneuver • Drag of Aircraft, AR • Takeoff Ground Roll • CL Max for Takeoff, AR, Drag of Aircraft, Takeoff Distance • Second Segment Climb • CL Max for Takeoff, AR, Drag of Aircraft • Landing Ground Roll • CL Max for Landing, Landing Distance

  25. Datum Basic Assumptions • Boeing 757 Datum: TSL/W = 0.33 & WO/S = 135.18

  26. Datum Constraint Diagram

  27. Constraint Diagram Observations

  28. Resulting Feasibility • Increasing CL Landing, Ground Roll, e improve upon datum • Blended Wing Body Concept • Setting computed AR, T/W increases, W/S increases • Twin Fuselage Concept • Setting computed AR, T/W decreases, W/S decreases

  29. Significant Differences Between Assumptions and Technology Factors • Twin Fuselage Concept • With larger AR and wetted area, larger CL Takeoff & Landing required and increased CDO • Alternatively, extend runway limitations • Blended Wing Body Concept • With top-sided engine placement, increased CL because of disturbances from engine • With lower AR, can make up efficiency with higher Oswald efficiency factor • Smaller Parasite Drag leads to smaller CDO

  30. Aircraft Sizing Capabilities • Status: Working • Weight Build-Up Complete • Simple Drag Polar • Mission Profile • Engine Modeling • Concept Application • 3 variations of Sizing Algorithms • 757-200, Hybrid Blended Body, Asymmetric Twin Fuselage

  31. Structures Build Up • Empty Weight Estimates – Wing, Vert/Horiz Tail, Fuse, Engines, Nacelles, Landing Gear, Avionics, Control Systems, etc. • Composite structure was taken into account with a ‘fudge’ factor (Raymer) • 0.9 for wing • 0.88 for tails • 0.95 for fuselage • Twin Fuselage Considerations: • Distribution of weight between fuselages • Passenger weight is also taken into account Large Fuselage: 41000 lbs Small Fuselage: 51000 lbs Without passengers This output compared to the actual EOW of 127520 lbs results in a difference of ~1%. *

  32. Drag Estimate Results for Concept Comparison Twin Fuselage 757 Hybrid Blended Body 21400 lbf 17400 lbf 14900 lbf -Values represent the drag estimate based on the parameter files with cruise conditions for each individual case - Plan to obtain more accurate results when the Drag Code is changed to accommodate for more Geometry and Sizing Variables using the Component Buildup Method

  33. Current Weight Conclusions • HBB modeled as having a lower AR, and lower Swet/Sref which is equivalent to a lower skin friction drag • Two fuselage modeled as higher AR and higher wetted area. • Both propulsion models have a 16% decrease in SFC.

  34. Concept Geometry Inputs In addition to the component weight buildup, the aerodynamics were modified to reflect the different concepts. This is summarized by the above table.

  35. Location of c.g. estimation From B757-200 as an example Only some major parts of the aircraft that significantly affect the c.g. location are considered More parts will be added to our calculation of c.g in the future.

  36. Calculation of c.g. c.g. travel diagram Weight Take Off Minimum allowable SM Gear up Wo Forward tank 3 fuel tanks: forward(fuselage), aft and wing tanks. c.g. shifting in flight Distance within forward and aft c.g. limit for 10% of the mean aerodynamic chord. Forward c.g. limit Aft tank Aft c.g. limit Fuel refilling Wing tank SM Gear down Stick fixed neutral point Wland nose CG location From Raymer

  37. Static Margin *consider only wing and horizontal tail Static margin positive for stability Use the lift curve slope of the wing and the horizontal tail. Lift coefficient equation to find the neutral point of the aircraft. Two categories, fixed parts (i.e. wing, fuselage…)and moveable parts(i.e. furnishing, payload…) Target static margin about 15%. Adjust the moveable parts to allow SM reaches our desire value.
