This paper discusses two possible designs, an unswept trapezoidal wing model and an essentially delta wing model for a 10 passenger Mach 2.2 Supersonic Business Jet. The studies are quite preliminary in nature and the result of team efforts in two different Senior Aerospace Vehicle Design courses at the Georgia Institute of Technology. The philosophy of the course and the selection of this particular aircraft as a project design are touched upon briefly.
The body of the paper compares the two designs, and discusses in an elementary manner their aerodynamic performance, engines, and propulsion systems; some of the design details; cost; and probable noise level, including the sonic boom problem. They are not considered solution aircraft, but the designs are believed to be fairly representative of what the resulting aircraft would resemble.
The work is continuing through re-cycling and optimization of the performance by computer techniques.
