Abstract:

DEFINITIONS ARE REQUIRED OF STRUCTURAL WEIGHT FRACTIONS FOR DELTOID AEROBODY PLATFORMS IN ORDER TO ASSESS THEIR POTENTIAL. PRIOR DATA ON CONVENTIONAL AIRPLANES AND ZEPPELINS CANNOT BE INTERPOLATED OR EXTRAPOLATED WITH CONFIDENCE TO PROVIDE THE REQUIRED DEFINITION. THEREFORE, STRUCTURAL DESIGN STUDIES WILL BE MADE ESPECIALLY FOR THIS SHAPE, MASS DISTRIBUTION AND AIRLOAD. MODERN HIGH-STRENGTH AND STIFFNESS COMPOSITE MATERIALS WILL BE USED. ALSO EFFECTS OF MORE FAVORABLE MASS DISTRIBUTIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED. STRUCTURAL WEIGHT FRACTIONS WILL BE FORMULATED FOR THE SO-DEFINED CONCEPTS, INCLUDING THEIR SIZE AND SPEED DEPENDENCY. FEASIBILITY AND EFFECTIVENESS OF THESE VEHICLES WILL BE ASSESSED PRELIMINARILY ON THIS BASIS. PHASE II PLANS AND A FINAL REPORT WILL CONCLUDE THIS PHASE I, FIVE MONTH STUDY.
