Preliminary Sizing of a Supersonic Commercial Transport Between Mach 2.0 and 2.4 965589
To review specifications of a next-generation supersonic commercial transport (SCT), conceptual design is performed. The study covers the cruise speed between Mach 2.0 and 2.4, and the range between 4,000 nmi and 6,000 nmi with the number of seats fixed to 300. Engines for Mach 2.0, 2.2 and 2.4 are conceptually designed and the data are applied to Japan Aircraft Development Corporation (JADC)'s SCT sizing and performance prediction tool (“CAD”). The maximum take off weights (MTOW) are surveyed to find the best combination of cruise speed and range.
