General Approach

Equations of Motion F = ma Models Aerodynamic, Propulsive Gravity, Atmospheric, Other

Performance

The lift, L, and drag, D, of the airplane can be calculated from:

1 L = V 2 SC L 2

Where:

1 D = V 2 SC D 2

V is the airspeed S is the wing area CL is the lift coefficient CD is the drag coefficient

We will model the relationship between the lift and drag of an airplane through the drag polar:

2 C D = C D0 + KC L

Where we know the values of CD0 and K for our airplane. The lift coefficient, CL, has a known maximum value:

C L,Max

Propulsion Models

As an example, we will assume all our airplanes are using turbojet engines (no bypass):

Propulsion Models

For a turbojet engine, maximum thrust, TMax, does not change very much with airspeed, V, while flying at subsonic speeds For a turbojet engine the maximum thrust, TMax, changes with density as given by:

TMax = TMax0

Where,

TMax0 is the maximum thrust at sea level

Propulsion Models

How do we quantify the fuel consumption of a turbojet engine? We usually do so by calculating the thrust specific fuel consumption, ct:

ct = thrust specific fuel consumptio n

(weight of fuel consumed for a given time increment) = (thrust output) (time increment)

= & w fuel T

In this lecture we will treat ct as a constant At subsonic speeds ct is constant; (it does not vary much with velocity or altitude)

By definition, lift is perpendicular to the wing and V By definition drag is parallel to V No acceleration (steady), V = constant Wings level Horizontal flight (no climb/descent) Summing forces parallel to the flight direction: T-D=0 or equivalently T=D

Stall Speed

Let us determine how slow we can fly in steady level flight. In other words, we want to determine the stall speed, Vstall

1 L = V 2 SC L = W 2

V=

2W SC L

Vstall =

2W SC L,Max

Stall Speed

Vstall = 2W SC L,Max

How does the various parameters in this equation: W, , S, CL,Max affect Vstall? Numerical Example: Motorglider m = 300 kg W = mg = 2,943 N = 1.225 kg/m3 (i.e., sea level) S = 12.5 m2 CL,Max = 1.5

Vstall = 16 m/s

Maximum Speed

D TMax

Airplane at Specific: Altitude Weight

D = TMax

VMax

Maximum Speed

To determine the maximum speed of a turbojet airplane we start with the equation of motion:

T =D

But we agreed to model the thrust as:

T=TMax

and determine drag from:

= TMax0 0

1 D = V 2 SC D 2

Substituting these equations into the first one gives us:

1 TMax0 = V 2 SC D 2 0

Maximum Speed

We also agreed to a drag polar model for CD of the form:

2 C D = C D0 + KC L

This equation has CL in it Lets get rid of it by writing CL in terms of V. From our other equation of motion we already know that: 1 L = V 2 SC L = W 2 Solving this equation for CL gives us:

2W CL = V 2 S

Substituting this equation for CL into our polar model yields:

Maximum Speed

C D = C D0 + K

(V S )

4W 2

Which we can then plug in onto our equation relating thrust and drag: 1 TMax0 = V 2 SC D 2 0 to get, after some rearranging:

1 2 KW 2 TMax0 = V 2 SC D0 + 2 V 2 S 0

Multiplying both sides of this equation by V2 gives us:

Maximum Speed

Which, after some rearranging gives us:

2 2KW 2 1 4 2 SC D0 V TMax0 V + S = 0 0

Notice that this is simply a quadratic equation in V2 of the form:

aV

Where,

( ) +bV

2 2

+c =0

1 a = SC D0 2

b = -TMax0 0

2 KW 2 c= S

Maximum Speed

This quadratic equation has a solution of the form:

b b 2 4ac V = 2a

2

2 TMax0 TMax0 4C D0 KW 2 0 0 V= SC D0

Finally, we are interested in the maximum speed, VMax, so we pick the positive root in the above equation to yield

Maximum Speed

VMax 2 TMax0 + TMax0 4C D0 KW 2 0 0 = SC D0

Numerical Example: Motorglider Powered by a Turbojet (wow!) m = 300 kg W = mg = 2,943 N = 0.6601 kg/m3 (i.e., 6,000 m altitude) 0 = 1.225 kg/m3 (i.e., sea level) S = 12.5 m2 CD0 = 0.015 K = 0.020 TMax0 = 500 N

Steady Climbing Flight

Note: arrows not to scale!

Graphics source: Anderson, Aircraft Performance and Design

Rate of Climb

No acceleration (steady) Wings level Climbing flight at an angle to Earths surface Thrust parallel to velocity Summing forces parallel to the flight direction: T - D - W sin = 0 Summing forces perpendicular to the flight direction: L - W cos = 0 Rate of Climb = ROC = V sin Note that the same equations apply to steady descending flight!

Graphics source: Anderson, Aircraft Performance and Design

Rate of Climb

Starting with the sum of forces parallel to the flight direction: T - D - W sin = 0 Multiply by V and re-arrange:

TV DV = V sin = ROC W

Note that: T V = PA = Power Available D V = PR = Power Required Thus,

ROC =

Rate of Climb

Here we have discussed the rate of climb, ROC. A related problem is the angle of climb, . Note that the maximum rate of climb, ROCMax does not yield the maximum angle of climb, Max. Pilots beware!!!

After same time interval: H(ROCMax) > H(Max)

ROCMax Max

Range

Range - How far can we fly? Calculate the range of an airplane during its cruise leg Range will be significantly affected by weight, so let us start by defining some weight quantities. Let: W0 - weight of the airplane at the start of cruise leg Wf - weight of fuel at a specific point in time; varies throughout the cruise leg W1 - weight of the airplane at the end of the cruise leg W - weight of the airplane at a specific point in time; varies throughout the cruise leg At any point during the cruise leg, then: W = W1 + Wf

Range

Start of Cruise W = W0 During Cruise W = W1 + Wf Time Range (Distance Covered) End of Cruise W = W1

Note: No assumption is being made about the flight altitude at this time - altitude during cruise may or may not be constant!

Graphics source: Anderson, Aircraft Performance and Design

Range

Let us assume we are in level steady flight, and that our thrust vector is aligned with the airspeed:

T=D L=W

Range

After a certain amount of calculus and manipulation we can write the following integral equation for the range, R, of a turbojet airplane:

V L dW 1 = R = c D W c W1 t W1 t

W0

W0

1 2 C L 2 dW S C D W

Very few assumptions were made to derive this equation: Flight in no-wind conditions Steady level flight L=W T=D Thrust aligned with V

Range

We can make some further assumptions and that will simplify the integral and allow us to evaluate it explicitly: The thrust specific fuel consumption, ct is constant We are flying at a constant altitude, thus is constant The wing area, S, is constant (we hope so!)

1 We are flying at a constant value of (C L 2 C D )

Range

1 R = ct 2 C S C D

1 2 W0 L

dW W W1

1 2 CL 2 1 2 W0 W11 2 S C D

2 R= ct

Range

2 R= ct

1 2 CL 2 1 2 W0 W11 2 S C D

What is this equation telling us about obtaining maximum range for a turbojet airplane? For maximum range, fly at the value of CL where

(C

12 L

C D is maximum

Fly at high altitude so that is small (within limits) Use an efficient engine with a low value of ct Carry lots of fuel (difference in square root of weights)

A similar equation can be derived for an airplane powered by a reciprocating engine/propeller combination:

W0 R= ln c C D W1

Where, pr is the propeller efficiency c is the power specific fuel consumption In this case: Fly at best L/D speed Altitude doesnt matter so much Use an efficient engine/propeller Carry lots of fuel (ratio of weights)
