1. Fuselage Layout The design of the fuselage is based on payload requirements, aerodynamics, and structures. The overall dimensions of the fuselage affect the drag through several factors, and the best layout requires a detailed study. In this study, we would select a few variables about aircraft fuselage which must be chosen for design. ① Cross Section Cross section is the first thing that we determine for the fuselage design. Most fuselage cross sections are relatively circular in shape. This is done for two reasons, aerodynamical, and structural problem. However, many fuselages are not circular as dictated by cost constraints or volumetric. For circular fuselage’s case, space could be wasted, so to solve this problem, elliptical or double-bubble arrangement can be used. Choosing the shape of cross section, we can calculate the diameter of the cross section. To determine the diameter, first, we should determine the number of passenger, the arrangement of passengers and the number of aisles in a section. Then, the clearance of a
