P G Mack, D W Abrams: 558. Design Considerations in the Boeing 737 Jet Transport. 1966.



At a time when the industry trend in jet transport design has been toward aft body mounted engines and when The Boeing Company had recently introduced the highly successful Model 727, the same Boeing team, has designed the new twin-jet Model 737 with engines mounted on the wing. The factors that prompted this seemingly reactionary move, and some of the other significant design features of the 737, are the subject of this paper. To develop this subject, we will examine the engine location, engine selection, body cross section, and high-lift system that contribute to the advanced design of the 737.
