2. Horizontal Flights
In this clip Dr. Voskuijl will introduce a new topic: horizontal flight performance! The following clips will only detail propeller aircraft, for jet aircraft a separate document has been prepared. This you can download here.
In this video we will take a look at the minimum and maximum speed for aircraft.
In this clip Dr. Voskuijl will explain how to calculate the maximum range of an aircraft. This is quite a long video, so please pause the video halfway if it is too long and watch the other half another time.
This clip we will take a look at the endurance of an aircraft, in other words, how long it can stay in the air. Again this is a long clip, so feel free to pause it when you want to!
Note: At 19:02 in this clip it is told that a fuel flow of 0.0033 kg/s corresponds to a fuel consumption of 9.5 L/hr. This is a mistake from our side, this should be 14.85 L/hr.
In this lecture we will take a ride in the TU Delft laboratory aircraft in order to demonstrate speed stability and instability. So fasten your seatbelts!
In the clip below Dr. Voskuijl will give a summary of lecture 2: horizontal flight performance.
