introduction
Introduction
  • The team chose to compete in the Regular Class of the SAE Aero East Competition
  • Team must design and build an airplane to lift the most weight
  • All design and construction must be done by the students without professional help
objectives
Objectives
  • Design and build an airplane to successfully compete in the SAE Aero East Competition
  • Plane must take off from within a 200 foot runway and then land successfully on a runway of 400 feet
  • Constraints of 55 total pounds and a height, weight, and length of 200 inches must be followed
impact
Impact
  • UAVs are becoming more prevalent in the military
  • Project will provide model for future UAV production
  • A design maximizing lift will allow for a better performing aircraft
airfoil concepts
Airfoil Concepts
  • Optimal Properties: Maximize Lift, Minimize Drag
  • Researched a variety of airfoil designs
  • Decided on four concepts based on their high coefficients of lift and low coefficients of drag:
  • Eppler 423, Selig 1223, NACA 8414, Wortmann FX 63-137
  • Obtained values for CL and CD vs. AoA using airfoil modeling software
airfoil concepts cont
Airfoil Concepts (cont.)
  • Airfoils measured in five categories
  • Each category weighted according to importance
  • Airfoils rated in all categories
  • Weighted composite of scores is totaled
  • Most points = Best airfoil for our needs
wing shape concepts
Wing Shape Concepts
  • Three possible wing positions
  • Straight, Dihedral, Swept
  • Each shape gives unique control, stability and lift characteristics
wing shape concepts cont
Wing Shape Concepts (cont.)
  • Wing shapes measured in four categories
  • Metrics – Lift, Ease of Construction, Stability, Proven Success in past competitions
  • Lift and Stability of primary concern
landing gear concepts
Landing Gear Concepts
  • 3 Concepts: Tail Dragger, Tricycle, Retractable
  • Compared the weight, cost, durability, aerodynamics, ease of takeoff, and ease of landing
tail concepts
Tail Concepts
  • Four Different arraignments analyzed
    • T-Tail
    • Cruciform
    • H-tail
    • V-tail
  • Four categories the tail arraignments are analyzed for are, drag, ease of construction, stability, ground clearance

conclusion
Conclusion

Create a competitive airplane design following the rules of the competition

Use multiple resources to analyze design

Create and follow a clearly defined project management schedule

Create an airplane with better capabilities than previous Steven’s designs
