CFD Analysis and Assessment of the Stability and Control of a Supersonic Business Jet
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Extensive research has been done on the aerodynamics of supersonic aircrafts, especially in the military and commercial airplanes’ field. Regarding supersonic business jets (SSBJs), two major problems have been addressed in past investigations: reducing the sonic boom and decreasing the NOx emissions. This report focuses on a di˙erent aspect, the controls and stability of this type of aircrafts. This field has not been addressed thoroughly by the di˙erent companies and universities investigating SSBJs, as most of the existing concepts are preliminary designs that have not been developed extensively. With this report I try to put my two cents in analyzing the longitudinal stability and control surfaces of three di˙erent SSBJs designs.
