FAQ

What is Specific Fuel Consumption for given Endurance of Propeller-Driven Airplane?
The Specific Fuel Consumption for given Endurance of Propeller-Driven Airplane can be obtained from the Breguet endurance formula and is a function of the altitude of aircraft and is represented as c=(η/E)*((CL^1.5)/CD)*(sqrt(2*ρ*S))*(((1/W0)^(1/2))-((1/W1)^(1/2))) or Specific Fuel Consumption=(Propeller efficiency/Endurance of aircraft)*((lift coefficient^1.5)/Drag Coefficient)*(sqrt(2*Freestream density*Reference Area))*(((1/Gross Weight)^(1/2))-((1/Weight without fuel)^(1/2))). Propeller efficiency is defined as power produced (propeller power) divided by power applied (engine power), Endurance of aircraft is the maximum length of time that an aircraft can spend in cruising flight, The lift coefficient (CL) is a dimensionless coefficient that relates the lift generated by a lifting body to the fluid density around the body, the fluid velocity and an associated reference area. , Drag Coefficient is a dimensionless quantity that is used to quantify the drag or resistance of an object in a fluid environment, such as air or water, Freestream density is the mass per unit volume of air far upstream of an aerodynamic body at a given altitude, The Reference Area is arbitrarily an area that is characteristic of the object being considered. For an aircraft wing, the wing's planform area is called the reference wing area or simply wing area, The Gross Weight of the airplane is the weight with full fuel and payload and Weight without fuel is the total weight of the airplane without fuel.
