Purpose
1.

General
This A380 AIRPLANE CHARACTERISTICS (AC) manual is issued for the A380-800 and A380-800F
series aircraft to provide necessary data to airport operators and airlines for airport facilities planning.
The A380-800 is a subsonic, very long range, very high capacity, civil transport aircraft.
There are two models in the A380-800 series :
-

A380-841 model equipped with Rolls-Royce Trent 970 engine,


A380-861 model equipped with Engine Alliance GP 7270 engine.

The A380-800F is a subsonic, very long range, civil freighter aircraft.


There are two models in the A380-800F series :
-

A380-843F model equipped with Rolls-Royce Trent 977 engine,


A380-863F model equipped with Engine Alliance GP 7277 engine.

In this manual, effectivity is managed as follows :


-

by default, the data is effective for all A380-800 and A380-800F models,
A380-800/800F models indicates that the related data or page is effective for all A380-800 and
A380-800F models,
A380-800 models restricts the effectivity of the related data or page to the A380-841 and
A380-861 models,
A380-800F models restricts the effectivity of the related data or page to the A380-843F and
A380-863F models,
the mention of a specific model (e.g. A380-841 model, A380-863F model, etc.) restricts the
effectivity of the related data or page to that specific model.

This document conforms to NAS 3601.

Design Weight Terminology


- Maximum Design Ramp Weight (MRW) :
Maximum weight for ground maneuver (including weight of taxi and runup fuel) as limited by aircraft
strength and airworthiness requirements. It is also called Maximum Design Taxi Weight (MTW).
- Maximum Design Landing Weight (MLW) :
Maximum weight for landing as limited by aircraft strength and airworthiness requirements.
- Maximum Design Takeoff Weight (MTOW) :
Maximum weight for takeoff as limited by aircraft strength and airworthiness requirements. (This
is the maximum weight at start of the take-off run).
- Maximum Design Zero Fuel Weight (MZFW) :
Maximum permissible weight of the aircraft less usable fuel.
- Operational Empty Weight (OEW) :
Weight of structure, powerplant, furnishings, systems, and other items of equipment that are an
integral part of a particular aircraft configuration plus the operators items. The operators items
are the flight and cabin crew and their baggage, unusable fuel, engine oil, emergency equipment,
toilet chemical and fluids, galley structure, catering equipment, seats, documents, etc.
- Maximum Payload :
Maximum Design Zero Fuel Weight (MZFW) minus Operating Weight Empty (OWE).
- Maximum Seating Capacity :
Maximum number of passengers specifically certified or anticipated for certification.
- Maximum Cargo Volume :
Maximum usable volume available for cargo.
- Usable Fuel :
Fuel available for aircraft propulsion.

General Information

**ON A/C A380-800 Models A380-800F Models


General
1.

This section provides airplane turning capability and maneuvering characteristics.


For ease of presentation, this data has been determined from the theoretical limits imposed by the
geometry of the aircraft, and where noted, provides for a normal allowance for tire slippage. As such,
it reflects the turning capability of the aircraft in favorable operating circumstances. This data should
only be used as guidelines for the method of determination of such parameters and for the
maneuvering characteristics of this aircraft type.
In the ground operating mode, varying airline practices may demand that more conservative turning
procedures be adopted to avoid excessive tire wear and reduce possible maintenance problems. Airline
operating techniques will vary in the level of performance, over a wide range of operating
circumstances throughout the world. Variations from standard aircraft operating patterns may be
necessary to satisfy physical constraints within the maneuvering area, such as adverse grades, limited
area or high risk of jet blast damage. For these reasons, ground maneuvering requirements should be
coordinated with the using airlines prior to layout planning.

**ON A/C A380-800 Models A380-800F Models


Ground Towing Requirements
1.

This section provides information on aircraft Towing.


The A380-800/800F is designed with means for conventional towing or towbarless towing.
Information on towbarless towing can be found in SIL 09-002 and chapter 9 of the Aircraft
Maintenance Manual.
It is possible to tow or push the aircraft, at maximum ramp weight with engines at zero or up to idle
thrust, using a towbar attached to the nose gear leg. The towbar fitting is installed at the front of
the leg (optional towing fitting for towing from the rear of the NLG available).
The body gears have attachment points for towing or debogging (for details refer to chapter 7 of the
Aircraft Recovery Manual).
NOTE : Information on aircraft towing procedures and corresponding aircraft limitations are given in
chapter 9 of the Aircraft Maintenance Manual.

2.

A.

Figure 1: Ground Towing Requirements A380-800 Models shows the chart to determine the
towbar pull and tow tractor mass requirements as function of the following physical
characteristics:
- Aircraft weight,
- Slope,
- Number of engines at idle.
The chart is based on the A380-800 engine type with the biggest idle thrust. The chart is
therefore valid for all A380-800 models.

B.

Figure : Typical Tow Bar configuration 1 and Figure : Typical Tow Bar configuration 2 gives
guidelines for the towbar.

Towbar design guidelines


The aircraft towbar shall respect the following norms:
- SAE AS 1614, Main Line Aircraft TowBar Attach Fitting Interface,
- SAE ARP1915 Revision C, Aircraft TowBar,
- ISO 8267-1, Aircraft - Towbar attachment fitting - Interface requirements - Part 1: Main line
aircraft,
- ISO 9667, Aircraft ground support equipment - Towbars,
- IATA Airport Handling Manual AHM 958, Functional Specification for an Aircraft Towbar.
A standard type towbar should be equipped with a damping system to protect the nose gear against
jerks and with towing shear pins:
- A traction shear pin calibrated at 62000 daN (139381.53 lbf),
- A torsion pin calibrated at 4800 m.daN (424778.76 lbf.in).

Maximum Extension of the NLG Shock Absorber.


-

Measure the dimension H between the two red marks on the left side of the NLG.
Make sure that the dimension H of the NLG is never more than 295 mm (11.6 in.) when you tow
the aircraft (the compression of the shock absorber is 340 mm (13.4 in.)).

EXAMPLE HOW TO DETERMINE THE MASS REQUIREMENT TO TOW A A380 AT 560 t, AT 1.5% SLOPE,
2 ENGINES AT IDLE AND FOR WET TARMAC CONDITIONS:
ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE GRAPH, CHOOSE THE RELEVANT AIRCRAFT WEIGHT (560 t),
FROM THIS POINT DRAW A PARALLEL LINE TO THE REQUIRED SLOPE PERCENTAGE (1.5%),
FROM THE POINT OBTAINED DRAW A STRAIGHT HORIZONTAL LINE UNTIL No. OF ENGINES AT IDLE = 4,
FROM THIS POINT DRAW A PARALLEL LINE TO THE REQUESTED NUMBER OF ENGINES (2),
FROM THIS POINT DRAW A STRAIGHT HORIZONTAL LINE TO THE DRAWBAR PULL AXIS,
THE YCOORDINATE OBTAINED IS THE NECESSARY DRAWBAR PULL FOR THE TRACTOR (34.4 t),
SEARCH THE INTERSECTION WITH THE "WET CONCRETE" LINE.
THE OBTAINED XCOORDINATE IS THE RECOMMENDED MINIMUM TRACTOR WEIGHT (60.4 t).

Contours are available for both Rolls-Royces Trent 900 engine and the Engine Alliances GP7200
engine.
The Maximum Take-off data are presented at the maximum thrust rating for all the A380 engine
models, including the A380-800F Freighter version. Therefore, contours hereafter include contours of
the A380-800 Passenger version.
The Breakaway data are presented at a rating corresponding to the minimum thrust level required to
initiate movement of an A380-800F model at its maximum ramp weight from static position and on
uphill ground.
The Idle data are directly provided by the engine manufacturers.
In the charts, longitudinal distances are measured from the inboard engine core nozzle exit station,
while lateral distances are measured from the aircraft fuselage centreline.
A.

Data from Rolls-Royces Trent 900:


The estimated efflux data are presented at ISA+15C (30C), Sea Level Static and negligible
wind conditions.
The analysis assumes that the core and bypass streams are fully mixed and calculates the jet
behaviour in free, still air and therefore does not take into account effects such as on-wing
installation, ground entrainment and ambient wind conditions.
Velocity contours are presented at 50 ft/s (15 m/s), 100 ft/s (30 m/s) and 150 ft/s (46 m/s),
while temperature contours are presented at 104 F (40C), 122F (50C) and 172F
(60C).

Data from Engine Alliances GP7200:

AIRPLANE CHARACTERISTICS

The estimated efflux data are presented at ISA+15C (30C), Sea Level Static with 20 kt
headwind. It also assumed ground plane and proximity effects. Velocity contours are presented
at 35 MPH (15 m/s), 65 MPH (30 m/s) and 105 MPH (46 m/s), while temperature contours
are presented at 122F (50C), 212F (100C) and 392F (200C). Engine Alliance strongly
recommends that jet blast studies using their contours include the effect of a 20-knot headwind.

Danger Areas of the Engines


The intake suction danger areas, which are plotted in this chapter, correspond to very low suction
velocities in order to prevent very low density objects (hat, handkerchief) from ingestion by engines.
The primary aim of those danger areas is to protect the people working around the engines.
Regarding the risk of ingesting typical loose objects, which can be found on ground at the edge of
runways/taxiways paved areas (loose gravels for example), it was demonstrated that the A380 outer
engines are high enough above ground so that the risk og ingestion is remote in the following
conditions:
- at usual taxiway thrust (i.e. up to the breakaway power setting), even if the loose objects are
below the A380 outer engines.
- at usual take-off thrust (i.e. up to the maximum take-off power setting), if the loose objects are
beyond 3 meters from the A380 outer engines centreline.

General Information

**ON A/C A380-800 Models A380-800F Models


General Information
1.

A brief description of the pavement charts that follow will help in airport planning.
To help in the interpolation between the discrete values shown, each airplane configuration is shown
with a minimum range of five loads on the main landing gear.
All curves on the charts represent data at a constant specified tire pressure with:
- the airplane loaded to the maximum ramp weight
- the CG at its maximum permissible aft position.
Pavement requirements for commercial airplanes are derived from the static analysis of loads imposed
on the main landing gear struts.
Section 7-2-0, gives basic data on the landing gear footprint configuration, maximum ramp weights
and tire sizes and pressures.
Section 7-3-0, shows maximum vertical and horizontal pavement loads for certain critical conditions
at the tire-ground interfaces.
Section 7-4-0 contains charts to find these loads throughout the stability limit of the airplane at rest
on the pavement.
Section 7-4-2 gives examples of the distribution of the main landing load to the wing and body
landing gears.
Section 7-4-3 shows the distribution of the main landing gear load to the wing and body gears.
These main landing gear loads are used as the point of entry to the pavement design charts which
follow, interpolating load values where necessary.
Section 7-5-1 uses procedures in Instruction Report No. S-77-1 Procedures for Development of CBR
Design Curves, dated June 1977 to show flexible pavement design curves.
The report was prepared by the U.S. Army Corps Engineer Waterways Experiment Station, Soil and
Pavement Laboratory, Vicksburg, Mississippi.
The line showing 10 000 coverages is used to calculate the Aircraft Classification Number (ACN).

The procedure that follows is used to develop flexible pavement design curves such as those shown in
Section 7-5-1.
A.

With the scale for pavement thickness at the bottom and the scale for CBR at the top, an
arbitrary load line is drawn representing 10 000 coverages.

B.

Incremental values of the weight on the main landing gear are then plotted.

C.

Annual departure lines are drawn based on the load lines of the weight on the main landing gear
that is shown on the graph.
Section 7-7-1 gives the rigid pavement design curves that have been prepared with the use of
the Westergaard Equation. This is in general accordance with the procedures outlined in the
Portland Cement Association publications, Design of Concrete Airport Pavement, 1973 and
Computer Program for Airport Pavement Design, (Program PDILB), 1967 both by Robert G.
Packard.

2.

The procedure that follows is used to develop rigid pavement design curves such as those shown in
Section 7-7-1
A.

With the scale for pavement thickness on the left and the scale for allowable working stress on
the right, an arbitrary line load line is drawn. This represents the main landing gear maximum
weight to be shown.

B.

All values of the subgrade modulus (k values) are then plotted.

C.

Additional load lines for the incremental values of weight on the main landing gear are drawn on
the basis of the curve for k = 80 MN/m3 already shown on the graph.
All Load Classification Number (LCN) curves shown in Section 7-6-1 and Section 7-8-2 have
been developed from a computer program based on data provided in the International Civil
Aviation Organisation (ICAO) document 7920-AN/865/2, Aerodrome Manual, Part 2,
Aerodrome Physical Characteristics, Second Edition, 1965.
The flexible pavement charts in Section 7-6-1 show LCN against equivalent single wheel load,
and equivalent single wheel load against pavement thickness.
The rigid pavement charts in Section 7-8-2 show LCN against equivalent single wheel load
against radius of relative stiffness.
Section 7-9-0 provides ACN data prepared according to the ACN/PCN system as referenced in
ICAO Annex 14, Aerodromes, Volume 1 Aerodrome Design and Operations Fourth Edition
July 2004, incorporating Amendments 1 to 6.
The ACN/PCN system provides a standardized international airplane/pavement rating system
replacing the various S, T, TT, LCN, AUW, ISWL, etc., rating systems used throughout the
world.

AIRPLANE CHARACTERISTICS

ACN is the Aircraft Classification Number and PCN is the corresponding Pavement
Classification Number.
An aircraft having an ACN equal to or less than the PCN can operate without restriction on
the pavement.
Numerically the ACN is two times the derived single wheel load (expressed in thousands of
kilograms).
The derived single wheel load is defined as the load on a single tire inflated to 1.25 MPa (181
psi) that would have the same pavement requirements as the aircraft.
Computationally, the ACN/PCN system uses PCA program PDILB for rigid pavement and
S-77-1 for flexible pavements to calculate ACN values.
The Airport Authority must decide on the method of pavement analysis and the results of their
evaluation shown as follows:
PCN
PAVEMENT TYPE
R - Rigid
F - Flexible

SUBGRADE

A - HighLow
B - Medium
C - Low
D - Ultra Low

T - Technical
U - Using aircraft

Section 7-9-1 show the aircraft ACN values for flexible pavements. The four subgrade categories
are :
- A High Strength CBR 15
- B Medium Strength CBR 10
- C Low Strength CBR 6
- D Ultra Low Strength CBR 3
Section 7-9-2 show the aircraft ACN for rigid pavements.
The four subgrade categories are :
- A High Strength Subgrade k = 150 MN/m3 (550 pci)
- B Medium Strength Subgrade k = 80 MN/m3 (300 pci)
- C Low Strength Subgrade k = 40 MN/m3 (150 pci)
- D Ultra Low Strength Subgrade k = 20 MN/m3 ( 75 pci)

Flexible Pavement Requirements - US Army Corps of Engineers Design Method
1.

General
To find a Flexible Pavement Thickness, the Subgrade Strength (CBR), the Annual Departure Level
and the weight on one Main Landing Gear must be known.
In the typical example shown in Section 7-5-1, Figure: Flexible Pavement Requirements - 4 Wheel
Bogie - MRW 512 000 kg - A380-800 Models.
- a CBR value of 10
- an Annual Departure level of 3 000
- and the load on one Wing Landing Gear of 90 000 kg (198 420 lb) the required Flexible
Pavement Thickness is 54 cm (21 inches).
The line showing 10 000 Coverages is used to calculate Aircraft Classification Number (ACN).

Rigid Pavement Requirements - Portland Cement Association Design Method

**ON A/C A380-800 Models A380-800F Models


Rigid Pavement Requirements - Portland Cement Association Design Method
1.

General
To determine a Rigid Pavement Thickness, the Subgrade Modulus (k), the allowable working stress
and the weight on one Main Landing Gear must be known.
In the typical example shown in Section 7-7-1, Figure: Rigid Pavement Requirements - 4 Wheel Bogie
- MRW 512 000 kg - A380-800 Models.
- a k value of 150 MN/m3 (550 lb/in3)
- an allowable working stress of 36 kg/cm2 (500 lb/in2)
- the load on one Wing Landing Gear of 90 000 kg (198 420 lb), the required Rigid Pavement
Thickness is 24 cm (9.5 inches).

Rigid Pavement Requirements - LCN Conversion
1.

General
To find the airplane weight that a Rigid Pavement can support, the LCN of the pavement and the
Radius of Relative Stiffness (L) must be Known.
In the typical example shown in Section 7-8-2, Figure: Rigid Pavement Requirements LCN - 4 Wheel
Bogie - MRW 512 000 Kg - A380-800 Models, The Radius of Relative Stiffness is shown at 1 016
mm (40 in.) with an LCN of 90. For these conditions the weight on one Wing Landing Gear is 90 000
kg (198 420 lb).

Radius of Relative Stiffness (Other values of E and )
1.

General
The chart of Section 7-8-1, Figure: Radius of Relative Stiffness, presents L values based on
Youngs Modulus (E) of 4 000 000 psi and Poissons Ratio () of 0.15.
To find L values based on other values of E and , see section 7-8-4, Figure: Radius of Relative
Stiffness (other values of E and ).
For example, to find an L value based on an E of 3 000 000 psi, the E factor of 0.931 is
multiplied by the L value found in table of Section 7-8-1, Figure: Radius of Relative Stiffness.
The effect of variations of on the L value is treated in a similar manner.

General
To find the ACN of an aircraft on flexible or rigid pavement, the aircraft gross weight and the
subgrade strength must be known.
A380-800 model:
In the example shown in Section 7-9-1, Figure: Aircraft Classification Number - Flexible Pavement MRW 512 000 kg - A380-800 Models, for an Aircraft Gross Weight of 440 000 kg (970 035 lb) and
medium subgrade strength (code B), the ACN for the flexible pavement is 46.
In the example shown in Section 7-9-1, Figure: Aircraft Classification Number - Flexible Pavement MRW 562 000 kg - A380-800 Models, for an Aircraft Gross Weight of 510 000 kg (1 124 360 lb) and
medium subgrade strength (code B), the ACN for the flexible pavement is 56.
In the example shown in Section 7-9-1, Figure: Aircraft Classification Number - Flexible Pavement MRW 571 000 kg - A380-800 Models, for an Aircraft Gross Weight of 510 000 kg (1 124 360 lb) and
medium subgrade strength (code B), the ACN for the flexible pavement is 55.
In the example shown in Section 7-9-2, Figure: Aircraft Classification Number - Flexible Pavement MRW 512 000 kg - A380-800 Models, for an Aircraft Gross Weight of 440 000 kg (970 035 lb) and
