Some may remember that a few months ago I started a topic about a university project in which we had to design a freighter.
Well the project is almost at an end and the aircraft is as defined as it is going to get with the reports all handed in now but we have a public (I think) design exhibition at the university on Wednesday and Thursday next week and so we have a model now in production which is due to be glassed tomorrow evening or Saturday morning.
Ok, well here is a link to the GA
(I apologise for the dimensions being in mm, I'm sure you can work it out)
Here is a link to a data sheet (again sorry for the ridiculous number of sig. figs on some of the values).
It is projected to have operating costs of 38.26c/t-nm. Can carry 20ft ISO shipping containers sideways in the main cabin and when packed using 118 inch high PMCs and with the projected 12lbs/ft^3 cargo density can carry a maximum of 187t of cargo but capable of 200t at higher densities and will transport 175t 5500nm.
It has an engine thrust of 90,860lb per engine, of which there is 4
, a wing area of 869m^3 an MTOW of 590t and OWE of 230t.
The list price of the aircraft has been projected to be $320million.
Anyway here is a pretty pic
If you have any questions please ask as my team mates and I need to practice answering any questions for the large grilling we will get on it at the design exhibition.
P.S. I am well aware that it has a hump and so does a 747, look from the top and you'll see where 90% of the inspiration came from.
