Abstract:

The purpose of the study was to investigate aerodynamic-propulsion concepts applicable to the canard configuration STOL air-sea craft, and in particular to develop and use a methodology for optimizing combinations of direct lift and augmented wing lift. A computer program was developed that optimized the propulsion system by maximizing the airplane radius for a given mission and a fixed initial airplane weight. Author
