Paper Title: 
1017. A Method for Weight/Cost Trade-Offs in Preliminary Air Vehicle Design
Year: 
1974
Paper Number: 
1017
Abstract: 

A simplified method for preliminary weight/cost trade-offs is presented. Wing and fuselage weighted models are established and compared to a baseline con-figuration. Gross weight,load factors,wing geometry,outboard stores and fuselage volume determine the models. Relative values of weight and cost factors allow a comparison between different material utilization and structural configurations. Plots of cost versus weight are used to arrive at decisions for preliminary structural design. Examples of wing and fuselage structural weight and cost matrices are presented.
