DETERMINATION OF DESIGN AIRSPEEDS AND LOAD FACTOR. PLOTTING DESIG ENVELOPES.
For a strength calculation it is necessary to know design airspeeds and load factors. Initial conditions for determination of these values for transport airplanes are: a take-off weight Gt, Lw - wing span, Sw – wing area, cruising airspeed of an airplane VC at a cruise altitude of flight Hc, the wing sweep till 0.25 of chord – χ0.25 . These values are selected for the plane designed by the student. These values are shown below for AERI 001 which is an modification of HAWKER 4000 with extended range and passenger capacity. INITIAL DATA : Take – off mass of airplane Gt= 17666.67 kg Cruise speed VC= 842kmh Cruise altitude HC = 12000 m Wing span LW =18.8 m Wing area SW=43.82 m2 Quarter line swept of wing χ0.25=26 ͦ For planes flying with speeds 700-950 km/h airfoils are recommended with relative thickness = 8-12 %.

We spend calculation only for altitude H=0. In design office (DO) calculations are carried out for all altitude range. In this HT we have the cruising airspeed from technical data of plane. In strength analysis only equivalent airspeeds VEAS are used, which are calculated under the formula: VEAS =V ,

ρH =V Δ ρ0
where V- is air airspeed of plane on flight altitude, ρH – is air density on flight altitude, ρ0 - is air density on altitude H=0, - is relative density which we take from table of standard atmosphere. From the standard
