Graduate Research in Engineering and Technology (GRET)


This research develops and analyses a general aviation plane. A preliminary representation of the eventual product is used to start the design process for an airplane. Based on a drawing, a design mission profile is utilized to determine the weight. A more advanced approach is used to estimate weight, which employs calculated performance criteria to produce a more exact weight estimate. The wing design has been demonstrated to be a feasible alternative for a similar general aviation aircraft. When traveling through air or other fluids, a wing is a type of fin that provides lift. Airfoils may be observed on the wings, which have a streamlined cross-section, as a result of this. The lift created by a wing is compared to the drag generated by it to determine its aerodynamic efficiency.
