The potential for a correction by Rethorst for Vortex Lattice Methods (VLMs) exists to improve Longitudinal Static Stability predictions when applying the Rethorst correction to a slipstream engulfed horizontal stabilizer. The Rethorst correction has already proven to result in accurate lift predictions in VLMs for an isolated wing in a...

The demand for environmentally friendly aviation has increased the interest in alternative concepts, such as hybrid-electric propulsion systems. A novel conceptual hybrid-electric sizing methodology was devised, which provides a detailed engine performance prediction and an accurate sizing of the powertrain components. The performance prediction...
