Framework of Conceptual Design Methodology for Hybrid Buoyant Aircraft

Anwar Ul Haque, Waqar Asrar, Ashraf Ali Omar, Erwin Sulaeman, Jaffar Syed Mohamed Ali

Abstract


For economic and "green" transportation, the concept of hybrid buoyant aircraft has recently become a research focus in the aerospace community. In the present work, a methodology is proposed to aid in the conceptual design of such aircraft, powered by internal combustion engines with either liquid hydrogen or gasoline as a fuel. Special emphasis is given to the sequence of procedures to be adopted at the conceptual design level highlighting a step by step methodology for the achievement of system design targets with the help of a design example. The proposed design synthesis methodology has given a base line for further design work on such aircraft at a conceptual level. Moreover, it will assist to provide qualitative as well as quantitative data for other design concepts of such hybrid congurations being considered in the conceptual design phase.
