To gain a better understanding of how different aerodynamic parameters effect flight, I was tasked with conducting a performance analysis on the Supermarine Spitfire. To accomplish the given task, I developed a program in MATLAB that takes physical and aerodynamic parameters as an input, and publishes the aircraft’s:
1. Steady Level Flight Envelope.
2. Take off performance.
3. Climb performance.
4. Landing performance.
5. Descent performance.
6. Range and Endurance
7. Cruise Performance
as graphs for a pilot or an engineer to read.
