Paper Title: 
1024. A Parametric Analysis of Transport Aircraft System Weights and Costs
Year: 
1974
Paper Number: 
1024
Abstract: 

In determining unit and operating costs for advanced aircraft,it has been found that by having first-order weight and performance approximations for the aircraft systems and structural components, a step increase in cost prediction accuracy results. This paper presents first-order approximation equations for these systems and components. These equations were developed from data for most current jet transports,and they have been ordered to use a minimum number of performance parameters such as aircraft style, number of passengers, empty and gross weight, cargo load, and operating range. A NASA Ames Research Center aircraft cost program has been used to compare calculated and actual weights for the same aircraft. Good aircraft cost correlation is shown to exist between calculatedfirst-order and actual aircraft weight data.
