This paper presents a methodology for the design of the primary flight control surfaces, in terms of size, number and location, for fixed wing aircraft (conventional or unconventional). As test case, the methodology is applied to a 300 passenger variant of the Prandtl Plane. This box wing aircraft is deemed to have low induced drag compared to conventional aircraft. The methodology is completely physics based and includes an aerodynamic analysis, followed by a control allocation algorithm anddoi:10.2514/6.2010-3060 fatcat:zrfa2rogb5atnerxr45nmm67xi
