K L Sanders, D O Nevinger: 840. Balancing Options in Aircraft Configuration Design. 1970.



Several means of balancing an aircraft design are discussed herein. Equations are developed to determine required configuration changes and to analyze the associated weight penalties. A hypothetical fighter aircraft was chosen as example to demonstrate the applicability of the suggested procedure and to compare the weight penalties resulting from several balance methods.
