The purpose of this paper is to simplify the preliminary design process as well as the initial evaluation of existing design parameters of civil jet aircraft; to include noise level consideration right from the start of the design process; and to form a current database of civil jet aircraft design parameters.
Simple (linear) correlations are found between key design parameters.
Direct linear relationships are found between design parameters including noise levels. Simplified preliminary design process.
New correlations which simplify the current procedures for preliminary design. In addition, the noise is included right from the beginning of the design. Finally, a new database is formed with specially selected aircraft that is current and covers a wide spectrum of sizes.
