Excercise: Your Action!

5 no video Preliminary Sizing: Hydrogen Aircraft, Excercise   Check out the Excel file for the re-design of the Airbus A320-200:
*.pdf A-C_Preliminary_SizingA320_CFM56.xlsx
Now, please read this: "Dieter Scholz: Parameter Selection for Hydrogen Passenger Aircraft Preliminary Sizing":
*.pdf ParameterSelectionLH2.pdf
Select the parameters for the A320(not the average parameters). Replace the values for SFC, m_OE/m_MTO, and E_max. Check the Sizing Diagram. Modify V_CR/V_md. Check at the end of the table for m_ML > m_MZF + m_R,res! Iterate your design. Interpret your results.
Here is the solution:

Now you calculate your hydrogen aircraft! --- A task for everyone! Here you show, you can design (size) the hydrogen aircraft.
