MAE 155A Aerospace Engineering Design I Winter 2010 Homework #3A (Aircraft Design) DUE DATE: Thursday, 18 FEB 2010 Problem #1 Airplanes on approach to San Diego (SAN) airport pass directly over parts of Balboa Park and the downtown area. Compute the SPL when an airplane passes directly overhead an unfortunate apartment dweller that lives 2 Km away from the SAN runway threshold. A jet engine operating at 100% thrust produces 100 dB SPL at 1,000 ft reference distance. Assume that the airplane throttles are set at 50% thrust on approach, and that the sound intensity is proportional to the square of engine thrust. (i.e. I/I max = (T/T max ) 2 ). Also assume that the airplane is on a 3-degree landing approach flight path. The atmospheric absorption coefficient is 1.2 dB per 1,000 ft. Problem #2 Use the refined sizing method (Lecture 4 and Raymer CH6) to design a "super-cruise" military fighter that satisfies the following requirements. a) takeoff ground-roll distance < 8,000 ft at sea level b) cruise at M1.6, 50Kft, to operating area 1,000 nmi away c) perform sustained 1.2g turn, M1.6, 50Kft, with W/W

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
