Abstract:

A simple empirical method is proposed for determining the overall required negative thrust and the required coefficient of reversal based on average statistical data on the magnitude of the reversible thrust capacity ratio of the overall thrust of the reverser to the weight of the aircraft of modern passenger airplanes with thrust reverser. This ratio for various types of aircraft ranges from 0.24 to 0.30 the larger figures apply to number of engines with thrust reverser as a function of the coefficient of reversal. Author
