Sample text

This is based in the utilization of a ramjet engine with lower thrust and specific impulse and hence acceleration potential compared to turbojet engines. It results in additional acceleration time to staging condition and causes a large radius of action (as already mentioned above). 5 Trade Studies Based on the findings of mission and Mach number variation, two trade studies are investigated. This is primarily to examine and evaluate different concepts and key technologies within the preliminary design process.

To identify the optimum conditions for ACES-application in a TSTO, different mission types (cruise- and accelerator mission) and staging conditions – similar to the analysis explained in the previous chapter – have been investigated using the Sänger as baseline configuration. Since a cruise segment is required for operating the collection device, the accelerator mission is found to be impracticable, even when using a supersonic loiter at high Mach numbers (to maintain distance from take-off/landing site) instead of a cruise-out segment.

This procedure is most notably reasonable especially in the early design phase, when necessary key system components like engines are not well defined [13]. 2: Schematics of the Cadehyp scaling tool. 3: Methods and tools for data set generation of Cadehyp and within the conceptual design process. Because Cadehyp does not generate, but scales the basic datasets, explanatory power is strongly dependent on the quality of input. By application of high-grade methods for dataset generation quality of output can be arbitrarily improved.
