Conceptual Design of a Small Size Unmanned Air Vehicle : Part B: Flight Performance and Flight Mechanics
Sammanfattning: This report summarizes the task of conceptually designing an UAV suited for agricultural observation of Swedish farmland. The design of the UAV was divided into two parts. This report focuses on the flight mechanics, performance analysis, and cost analysis of the UAV, whereas the other part centers around the aerodynamic performance. Therefore, some elements, such as the wing selection, will not be subject to discussion in this report. A set of different requirements were posed, such as having a flight time longer than two hours, being able to between 5-10 m/s, able to perform vertical take-off and landing, fly at a maximum of 100 meters, and weighing less than 5 kg. By using different sources of literature, reasonable assumptions, and Matlab analytics, a UAV was designed that met all constraints demanded. The cost analysis yielded a result that was reasonable, which overall makes this conceptual UAV a realistic product that could be manufactured using the project design.
