### Take Off And Landing Performance

1. 1. AE 1350 Lecture Notes #10
2. 2. TOPICS TO BE STUDIED <ul><li>Take-off and Landing Performance </li></ul><ul><li>There is considerable variations due to </li></ul><ul><ul><li>pilot technique </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ground conditions </li></ul></ul><ul><li>FAR 25 regulations cover how take-off and landing distances must be computed. </li></ul><ul><li>In your design, estimate wing area S to meet specified take-off and landing distances. </li></ul>
3. 3. Takeoff Performance Theory Ground Roll 80% of total takeoff distance, from experience. Transition and climb 20% of total takeoff distance, from experience We attempt to compute the ground roll as accurately as possible. Add an extra 20% distance to account for transition and climb. Rotate to take-off
4. 4. Ground Roll Let v be the aircraft speed. dv/dt = a where a= acceleration of the vehicle a= (All horizontal forces acting on the aircraft) / (Mass of aircraft) Assume “a” to be a constant. Integrate: v = at Velocity at lift-off v LO = a t LO Integrate again: d = 1/2 a t 2 d LO = 1/2 a t 2 LO = v 2 LO /(2a)
5. 5. Ground Roll (Continued) From the previous slide, the total roll distance is d LO = 1/2 a t 2 LO = v 2 LO /(2a) a = Acceleration of the aircraft due to horizontal forces on it. These forces are: Thrust, Drag, Ground Friction Thrust far exceeds the other two factors during takeoff. Thus, a = T/(Aircraft Mass) = T g/ (W) Then, total roll distance is d LO = v 2 LO /(2a) = v 2 LO . W/(2Tg)
6. 6. Ground Roll (Continued) Total roll distance d LO = v 2 LO . W/(2Tg) The pilot usually lifts off at 1.2 times stall velocity. Stall velocity V Stall is defined from: 1/2  V 2 Stall C Lmax S= W V 2 Stall = W/(1/2  C Lmax S) v 2 LO =(1.2 V Stall ) 2 = 1.44 W/(1/2  C Lmax S) Then, d LO = v 2 LO . W/(2Tg)= 1.44 (W) 2 / (Tg  S C Lmax ) Include factors of safety for transition and climb: Take-off Distance, in feet = 37.5 (W) 2 / (T  S C Lmax ) = 37.5 (W/S) /[(T/W)  C lmax ] where  = Density Ratio =  Sea-Level, , W in lbs, S in square feet
7. 7. Landing Performance There is considerable scatter in landing distances due to use of spoiler, brakes, reverse thrust, human factors ground conditions : wet runway , dry runway
8. 8. FAR-25 Regulations Landing Performance 50ft V approach =V A =1.3 V stall for civilian aircraft V approach =V A =1.2 V stall for military aircraft V approach =V A =1.1 V stall for carrier based aircraft Total Landing Distance, in feet = 0.3 (V approach in knots ) 2 Ground Roll These results are empirical, because of variations in pilot technique.
