Chapter 17

Performance – Take-Off

Abstract

The chapter presents T-O performance methods. First, fundamental relations of the T-O ground run, including the equation of motion for a T-O ground run and the kinematics of the T-O run are presented. Then, several methods to solve the equation of motion are introduced. These include standard, but limited solutions and a very capable numerical method that allows the introduction of time dependent events to be taken into account. These could be a time dependent increase in flap deflection or power increase. Finally, the T-O characteristics of selected aircraft types are presented to allow the reader an accessible reference to actual aircraft data.
