Abstract:

A presentation of the aerodynamics of the Tu-104 series of twin-jet passenger aircraft including A, B, and D-suffix versions, written for pilot and engineer personnel assigned to them. The introductory Part One 3 chapters deals in general terms with the aerodynamics of high speeds physical properties of air, laws of motion of air, and airfoil characteristics. Part Two 12 chapters is on the behavior of the Tu-104 aircraft itself design and aerodynamic characteristics, powerplant performance, and the various phases of flight under the range of conditions encountered in operation takeoff, climb, level flight, descent, turns, and landing balance, stability and controllability and their limits one-engine-out operation, with failure occurring at various times during takeoff and flight behavior of the aircraft under turbulent and icing conditions.
