|Content / Educational Objectives
|The lecture Aircraft Performance gives an insight on flight performance calculations and explains the relations in flight dynamics based on analytical approximations of aerodynamic, thrust and gravitational forces. Based on the definition of a consistent nomenclature, the nonlinear equations of motion of aircraft are introduced that are used to derive stationary flight conditions. Based on these derivations, the optimal states for the individual conditions are derived – i.e. the flight performance parameters like for example the optimal glide angle or the maximum range of an aircraft.
After attendance of this lecture, the student is able to understand the relations of flight performance calculations and to apply this knowledge for flight performance calculations as they are common for the pre-design of aircraft.
