Calculation and optimisation of flight performance is required to design or select new aircraft, efficiently operate existing aircraft, and upgrade aircraft. It provides critical data for aircraft certification, accident investigation, fleet management, flight regulations and safety. This book presents an unrivalled range of advanced flight performance models for both transport and military aircraft, including the unconventional ends of the envelopes. Topics covered include the numerical solution of supersonic acceleration, transient roll, optimal climb of propeller aircraft, propeller performance, long-range flight with en-route stop, fuel planning, zero-gravity flight in the atmosphere, VSTOL operations, ski jump from aircraft carrier, optimal flight paths at subsonic and supersonic speed, range-payload analysis of fixed- and rotary wing aircraft, performance of tandem helicopters, lower-bound noise estimation, sonic boom, and more. This book will be a valuable text for undergraduate and post-graduate level students of aerospace engineering. It will also be an essential reference and resource for practicing aircraft engineers, aircraft operations managers and organizations handling air traffic control, flight and flying regulations, standards, safety, environment, and the complex financial aspects of flying aircraft. Unique coverage of fixed and rotary wing aircraft in a unified manner, including optimisation, emissions control and regulation. Ideal for students, aeronautical engineering capstone projects, and for widespread professional reference in the aerospace industry. Comprehensive coverage of computer-based solution of aerospace engineering problems; the critical analysis of performance data; and case studies from real world engineering experience.

Recent changes to aircraft approach and departure procedures enabled by more precise navigation technologies have created noise concentration problems for communities beneath flight tracks.

Recent changes to aircraft approach and departure procedures enabled by more precise navigation technologies have created noise concentration problems for communities beneath flight tracks. There may be opportunities to reduce community noise impacts under these concentrated flight tracks through advanced operational approach and departure procedures and advanced aircraft technologies. A modeling method to assess their impacts must consider the contributions of aircraft engine and airframe noise sources as they vary with the position, thrust, velocity, and configuration of the aircraft during the flight procedure. The objective is to develop an analysis method to design, model, and assess the community noise reduction possibilities of advanced operational flight procedures performed by conventional aircraft and advanced procedures enabled by future aircraft concepts. An integrated analysis framework is developed that combines flight dynamics and noise source models to determine the community noise impacts of aircraft performing advanced operational approach and departure procedures. Aircraft noise due to the airframe and engine is modeled using an aircraft source noise module as each noise component varies throughout the flight procedure and requires internal engine performance states, the flight profile, and aircraft geometry. An aircraft performance module is used to obtain engine internal performance states and aircraft flight performance given the aircraft technology level. A force-balance-kinematics flight profile generation module converts the flight procedure definition into altitude, position, velocity, configuration, and thrust profiles given flight performance on a segment-by-segment basis. The system generates single-event surface noise grids that are combined with population census data to estimate population noise exposure for a given aircraft technology level and procedure. The framework was demonstrated for both advanced approach and departure procedures and advanced aircraft technologies. The advanced procedure concepts include modified speed and thrust departures as well as continuous descent, steep, and delayed deceleration approaches for conventional aircraft. The ability to model advanced aircraft technologies was demonstrated in the evaluation of using windmilling drag by hybrid electric aircraft on approach to allow the performance of steep and delayed deceleration approaches for noise reduction beyond the performance capability of standard gas-turbine aircraft.
