Environmental Friendly Transport Aircraft [chapter]

Martin Hepperle
2004 Notes on Numerical Fluid Mechanics and Multidisciplinary Design  
The paper discusses some key elements of aircraft configurations which are intended to meet future requirements of environmental friendly transportation. Increased transport capacity is achieved by enhancing takeoff and landing performance in order to reduce the separation between subsequent flights. Additionally, overall productivity is improved by adapting the configuration to future noise restrictions allowing for extended daily operating times.
