Aircraft Concept Walk-Around

  • Noise Shielding

  • Vertical Stabilizers

  • Lifting Canards

Circular Fuselage

  • Fuselage – aft

  • Mounted Engines

Noise Shielding

Low Wing

Spiroid Wing-Tips

Lifting canard
Lifting Canard



Designed to provide more lift at high speeds

Reduces induced drag at cruise

May allow for smaller main wing

Downwash from canards has large effect on main wings

Stability demands that canard stall before main wing, therefore main wing never reaches full lift potential

Canard n 2
Canard & N+2

  • The canard design had a smaller empty weight, but had a larger fuel burn which implies worse total drag performance

Vertical stabilizer
Vertical Stabilizer

  • Two vertical stabilizers are placed directly on the wings to shield the engines. The intent was to reduce the noise signature of the aircraft.

Engine mounting
Engine Mounting

  • Two engines mounted in rear of the fuselage for reliability and thrust requirements

  • The benefit of mounting the engines above the wing and surrounded by vertical stabilizers will keep noise levels low.

Cabin considerations
Cabin Considerations

  • Stand up cabin in the aisle to accommodate the “plush” comfort level

  • Crew areas expanded to allow sleeping quarters for reserve pilot

  • Two lavatories and galley necessary for full passenger load

Summary of advanced concepts
Summary of Advanced Concepts

  • Aid the US Federal Aviation Administration in increasing airspace capacity near airports

  •  Potential for large decreases in wake intensity. This could substantially alter the requirements for separation distances between lead and following aircraft in airport traffic patterns

Canard sizing summary
Canard Sizing Summary

  • AR = 12

  • T/W = .34

  • W0/S = 87

  • W0 = 71,300 lbs

  • Wempty = 38,000 lbs

  • Wfuel = 31,500 lbs

  • Landing ground roll = 2200 ft

  • Takeoff ground roll = 3900 ft

Drag prediction
Drag Prediction

  • Component drag build up based on four types of drag

    • Drag: pressure, induced, miscellaneous, and wave

    • Components: pylons, engines, fuselage, wings, etc.

  • Induced drag is a sum of that produced by both the main wing and canard, with the canard contributing its own downwash onto the main wing

  • Viscous effects are not strong enough to damp out the downwash over the distance between the canard and main wing

Drag at cruise
Drag at Cruise

  • CD = kCD,p + TF*CD,i + CD,misc + CD,w

  • = 1.05CD,p + TF*CD,i + CD,w

  • = 0.01661 + 0.01002 + 0.00002

    • CD,cruise = 0.02665

Wing airfoil selection
Wing Airfoil Selection

  • Required Cl

    • Takeoff: 1.2

    • Cruise: 0.46

    • Landing: 2.0

  • Supercritical Airfoil use

    • Comparison of RAE 2822 to NASA SC(2)-0610.

    • NASA airfoil would provide higher lift but have a greater moment.

  • NASA SC(2)-0610 selected for wing design.

  • Geometry and comparison from http://www.worldofkrauss.com/

Flap selection
Flap Selection

  • Regular flap vs Single slotted Flap

  • Higher lift, but more complex

  • Can meet required lift of 2.0 with only single slotted flap

  • http://ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntrs.nasa.gov/19750064451_1975064451.pdf

Tail airfoil selection
Tail airfoil Selection

  • Small operating range for angles of attack.

  • Laminar flow foil selected to reduce drag.

  • Symmetrical airfoil.

  • NACA 64(2)-015 was selected for use.

Material selection process
Material Selection Process

  • Static Dissipation and Electrically Conductive

  • Icephobic Coatings

  • Maintenance

  • Cost

  • Density and Fatigue Resistance


  • Silicones

    • Ability to maintain its elasticity and low modulus over a broad temperature range provides excellent utility in extreme environments

    • Protection against static accumulation and discharge

  • Composites

    • Light and very strong but maintenance is an issue and is expensive

    • No Established data

  • Aluminum

    • Lower cost

    • Easier certification

    • Established maintenance

  • Steels

    • Used mainly in the landing gear

  • Advanced Alloys

    • Higher elastic modulus

    • Density savings

Aircraft components
Aircraft Components

  • Fuselage skins and wing stringers - Aluminum Alloys

    • Better Fatigue Crack Growth (FCG) performance reduces structural weight.

  • Canard, Control surfaces and wing skin panels – Glare Composites

    • Resistant to damage at high temperatures

  • Landing gear – Steel Alloy

    • High strength, corrosion resistant

  • Nose, Leading and Trailing edges - Carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP)

    • Lighter than titanium

      • Higher fracture toughness and yield strength

Static longitudinal stability
Static Longitudinal Stability

  • Assuming symmetry about the centerline, changes in angle of attack no influence on yaw or roll of aircraft.

  • To achieve stability in pitch, any change in angle of attack must generate resisting moments.

  • Static Margin = (Xnp – Xcg)

    • c.g. must be ahead of the neutral point in order to be stable

    • Typical transport aircraft: 5-10%

    • Assumed that engine is primary noise source

    • Evaluated noise due to exhaust and fan

    • Obtained EPNL values with a few approximations:

      • Altitude at 6000m from runway after Takeoff

      • Altitude at 2000m from runway before Landing

      • Volumetric Flow Rate

      • Temperature

      • Pressure

Noise estimation1
Noise Estimation

  • The Process

    • Find sound power of each source

    • Convert to sound power level (SWL)

    • Calculate sound pressure level (SPL) based on SWL and distance from source

      • Assumes spherical wave propagation

      • Adjust for A-weighted SPL

    • Calculate dominant tonal frequency

    • Convert to Noybased on SPL and dominant tonal frequency using equal loudness contours

    • Sum Noy for both the exhaust jet and fan
