Climb and Glide

  1. Mar 4, 2013 #1
    Hi, I am proposing a new design and currently using the Raymers conceptual approach. When trying to calculate W/S for climb conditions, I dont know how I am supposed to get or propose the climbing speed if I have a defined goal of climb.

    Formual used is W/S=( [(T/W)-G]+-sqroot{[(T/W)-G]2-(4Cd0/piAe)} ) / (2/[qpiAe])

    where G=gradient=Rate of climb/Climbing speed or Vertical speed/horizontal speed.

    Does anyone knows how should I propose/calculate/know Climbing(horizontal) speed?

    I already determined Vmax, Vstall and Vtakeoff
