Abstract

In this paper, the correlation among some design parameters which are important for conceptual design phase of a combat aircraft are investigated. For this purpose, by creating a database including new generation aircrafts, what level correlation exists among the primary design parameters, such as weight, wing area, thrust, maximum speed and rate of climb etc., are analyzed. It is concluded that the obtained significant correlations can be a guide for the aircraft designers at the conceptual design phase.
