Title

Aerodynamic Design Optimization Trim Analysis of Canard Conventional Configurations

Abstract

It is the purpose of this paper to analyze and present detailed analyses of trim cruise flight of high performance general aviation canard aircraft that achieve minimum drag and to compare the results to a tail-aft baseline aircraft designed to the same specifications. The design specifications for both the baseline and the canard six-plane aircraft are shown. Since two airfoils are analyzed, four aircraft are designed.
