Meet Fat Body, Boxed In And Double Bubble

Post by Admin on Tue Jun 30, 2015 7:01 pm


Fat body
Flying wings and hybrid-wing body planes, such as Nasa’s N3-X, produces lift with their entire airframe, cutting drag and reducing fuel use. (Copyright: Nasa)






Boxed In
Lockheed Martin's diamond box-wing design is now feasible thanks to lightweight fibre-reinforced composite materials. (Copyright: Lockheed Martin/Nasa)



Double Bubble
However, wider bodied planes, such as MIT’s D8, may be less acceptable to passengers because of the reduced number of windows per seat. (Copyright: Nasa/MIT)
