Correlation-regression models for calculating the weight of small-scale aircraft gas turbine engines
Samara National Research University, Department of Aircraft Engine Theory, Samara, Russian Federation
Several new correlation-regression models of weight calculation for small-scale aircraft gas turbine engines are proposed for their conceptual design stage. A comparison of the obtained weight models with each other and with the Kuz’michev model is carried out. Based on the obtained results, conclusions about the feasibility and scope of their application are drawn. New correlation-regression models differ from each other in the number of input parameters, as well as in the accuracy of forecasting the weight. In the course of the work, a database of main data and thermodynamic parameters of turbofan engines (TFE) is created consisting of 92 small-scale TFEs with thrust less than 50 kN. Based on the collected statistics, formulas were obtained that allow calculating the weight at the initial stage of engine design. The error in calculating the weight by these models is in range from 10% to 30%.
