Time: 3 hours

Answer any FIVE Questions All Questions carry equal marks

Max Marks: 80

1. Describe the various types of landing gear. If you are designing a high subsonic airliner, which type of landing gear would you go for? Justify your answer. [16]

2. Determine the center-of-gravity location of an airplane given the following data:

W engine = 400 kg, W payload = 500 kg, W baggage = 60 kg, X engine = 20 m, X payload =

10 m, X

baggage

= 15 m. Xs are distances measured from the nose of the fuselage.

[16]

3. Explain the major differences in the designs of the fuselages of a military cargo

plane and a civil cargo plane. Justify your answer. Draw neat sketches. [16]

4. Write short notes, with neat sketches, on

(a)

Load distribution on wing - ideal and actual,

(b)

Weight distribution on wing - ideal and actual,

(c)

Load paths in aircraft,

(d)

Wing carry - through structures

[4+4+4+4]

5. What are the major constructional details of the aircraft which the conceptual

sketch should indicate? Elaborate.

[16]

Explain the difference between the followings:

(a)

Single haul and multi-haul aircraft

(b)

Elliptic and double-bubble cabin cross section

(c)

Reference wing area and lifting wing area

(d)

Tee-tail and butter fly tail.

[16]

Draw specifications for a business (executive) jet airplane to perform short

haul

service with a seating capacity for eight (8) passengers. Make use of sketches and

graphs to illustrate your answer.

(a) Discuss the historical trend of t/c (thickness to chord ratio) versus Mach number for an aircraft. Draw the pertinent graphs.

[16]

(b)

Would you prefer a high t/c (thickness to chord ratio) or low t/c for a super- sonic aircraft?

(c)

For M = 2, the historical trend indicates t/c (thickness to chord ratio) = 0.04. Discuss why it was used. What are the advantages and disadvantages of high t/c?
