What is it about?
This paper describes a methodology aimed at a rapid assessment of the minimum thrust requirement for a given aircraft configuration. This latter involves a tight coupling between flight mission analyses, engine performance, and optimization techniques. The flight performance analysis is used to assess the relatively significant constraints, thus rapidly identifying the feasible design space to meet specific requirements, considering a tradeoff between operation constraints and objectives often of conflicting nature.
