Three methods of calculating range and endurance of airplanes

One of 1,423 reports in the series: NACA Technical Reports available on this site.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This report develops new equations which give the range and endurance of airplanes with an accuracy equal to that obtained from a step-by-step integration of the flight. A method of obtaining equally satisfactory results from Brequet's equations is also given in detail. A third method of calculating range and endurance, derived by the writer for use in routine estimating in the Bureau of Aeronautics, is also given in full. The reports contains tables and curves arranged for convenient use and illustrates the three methods by comparative estimates.

National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics Collection

The National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) was a U.S. federal agency founded on March 3, 1915 to undertake, promote, and institutionalize aeronautical research. On October 1, 1958 the agency was dissolved, and its assets and personnel transferred to the newly created National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
