FLIGHT DYNAMICS IMPORTANT

UNIT-I

1. Types of drags and its reduction methods.(Refer Xerox notes)

2. ISA layers, Troposphere, stratosphere derivation.(Refer your own)

3. Obtain the values of pressure, density and temperature at 5 km in ISA.(Refer your own)


UNIT-II

For unit-II may three types of questions will ask in your university exams. TYPE-I

1. Derive the two equations given below and represent it graphically

D = AV2 + B/V2 ; P = AV3 + B/V.(Refer class notes)

2. An airplane is flying straight and level at a speed V which is ‘n’ timer the minimum power speed Vmp. Show

4. An aircraft weighing 25 kN has a wing area of 80 m2 and its drag coefficient is CD = 0.016 + 0.04 CL2, calculate the minimum thrust required for straight and level flight, and the corresponding true air speed. At sea level and at 10 km (ρ= 0.58kg/m3). Calculate also the minimum power required and the Corresponding true air speeds at the above conditions.(Refer class notes)
