Abstract:

The results of a fighter design case study performed to evaluate the transonic aircraft design procedure developed as part of the Advanced Transonic Technology ATT program are presented. The fighter design is based on the Configuration Design of Advanced Fighters program dual role configuration. Extensive wind tunnel testing of the design configuration was performed to validate the design procedure. The results of the wind tunnel tests are correlated with computational results generated in the design process. The purpose of the ATT program was to develop and validate a new transonic wing design procedure using numerical optimization. The new procedure was used to design both a transport and a fighter configuration. Because the missions and design requirements of a fighter and transport are so different, the design procedure was developed along parallel lines. This is Part 2 of a two-part volume Part 1 details the transport development, and Part 2 describes the fighter development. There are two other volumes which make up the final report. Volume 1 is an executive summary. It highlights the information that has been presented in detail here.
