AERODYNAMIC MULTI POINT DESIGN CHALLENGE
Daimler-Benz Aerospace Airbus GmbH, Bremen, Germany
In the chapter “Son of Coocorde. a Technology Challenge" one of the new challenges for a Supersonic Commercial Transport (SCT) is multi-point design for the four main design points
• supersonic cruise.
• transonic cruise,
• take-off and landing.
• transonic acceleration.
Besides engine technology, aerodynamics is most challenged by these differing requirements. But aerodynamic solutions will only become viable when contributing to an optimum of the whole aircraft, which is to be found in cooperation with all disciplines Here, we deal only with the most important aerodynamic parameters at the different design points and consequences for aerodynamic design
