Question

As a young design engineer you are asked to design an emergency braking parachute system for use with a military aircraft of mass 9500 kg. The plane lands at 350 km/hr, and the parachute system alone must slow the airplane to 100 km/hr in less than 1200 m. Find the minimum diameter required for a single parachute, and for three noninterfering parachutes. Plot the airplane speed versus distance and versus time. What is the maximum “g-force” experienced?

Step 1

1 of 12**Data:**

- $m=9500 \mathrm{\,kg}$ Mass of aircraft.
- $U=350 \mathrm{\,\dfrac{km}{h}}$ -Velocity of aircraft.
- $h=1200 \mathrm{\,m}$ -Airplane landing height.

It is necessary to determine the minimum diameter and draw a graphical speed in relation to the distance and time. What is the force $g$?
