Second World WarThe period isJetSince it became the mainstream, it is limited to some special uses, research and ideas in the present age.

Some propeller planes have names such as biplanes, but they all represent the number of main wings.

It is said that the "rate of fatal accidents per travel distance" is lower than that of vehicles such as ships, railroads, and cars, and it is said to be the safest vehicle in the world.On the other hand, once an accident occurs, it often causes enormous damage.

The name of an airplane

JapaneseThe flightMachineThe expression "Mori OgaiIs "Ogura diary"1901/(Meiji34) It is said that it was the first time that it was recorded in the article on March 3st.[Note 1].

Airplane flight principle

Simply put, an airplane isJet engineBy moving forward with a propeller or the like,WingsOn the other hand, it gains "airspeed", and thereby gains a lift greater than its own weight, and thus rises. Level flight is when the weight and lift of the plane are balanced.[6].

The lift that supports an airplane is空 気Of the flow of (orWindof)PowerIs a type of[7][Note 2].

The wind force does not change when a stationary object is hit by wind at a certain speed and when an object moves at the same speed in the opposite direction.[7].. For example, if a jet flies in the still air at a speed of 250 m/s, the wind is hitting the airframe from the front at a tremendous speed of 250 m/s. The power of the wind iswind speed OfSquareToProportionalIf you think that even a typhoon with a wind speed of 50-60 m/s has a huge power to destroy a house, you can imagine the strength of the wind that acts on a jet plane. The wing lift is the sameAngle of attackThen, the lift increases in proportion to the square of the speed, and at the same speed, the lift increases as the attack angle increases. When an airplane keeps a certain level and continues to fly horizontally, the lift balances with gravity, and the thrust of the propulsion device acts on the entire airplane.DragWe must try to balance each other. Therefore (when flying horizontally), the angle of attack is reduced when flying at high speed, the angle of attack is increased when flying at low speed, and the lift and gravity are adjusted to balance each other.[7].

In addition, if only the above description is made, it means that "when the attack angle of the wing is increased more and more, level flight is possible even if the speed is reduced", but at the stage when the attack angle reaches a certain limitstallPhenomenon occurs[7].. Therefore, there is a minimum speed at which an airplane can fly safely, which is called "minimum speed" or "stall speed".[7]..For example, jet transport aircraft generally have a speed of about 200-250 km / h.So in this case (formerly)ShinkansenYou can fly safely only at speeds above the maximum speed of[7].

It should be noted that the above is a description of a typical structure of an airplane, and there is a model having a structure different from that. For example,B-2BomberHas no torso and tail likeAll-wing aircraftHas been put into practical use (although a small number).

Aircraft structure

WingIt is,Kutta-Zukowski theoremDue to this, air circulation occurs above and below the blade, and apparently it has a cross-sectional shape in which the air flow is faster on the upper side of the blade than on the lower side of the blade. (The folklore that "the upper surface of the wing is more swollen than the lower surface, but the airflow passing through the upper side and the airflow passing through the lower side reach the rear end of the blade at the same time, the upper side airflow with a longer path becomes faster." (There is no basis for the assumption that the upper airflow and the lower airflow reach the rear end at the same time, and it is not possible to explain the rear flight and the flight of a paper airplane.)Bernoulli's theoremTherefore, the pressure in the upper part where the air flow is faster is lower than that in the lower part, and due to this pressure difference, an upward force (Lift) Occurs. Generally, the blade cross-section shape (Airfoil) Is swollen on the upper sideConvexThere are various airfoils depending on the flight speed and application. With airfoilWing plane shape(The shape of the wing seen from above) has a great influence on the flight characteristics. A slender planar shape is suitable for efficiently generating lift. The ratio of the length and width of the wing isaspect ratio”(Also called “aspect ratio”)2The larger the aspect ratio, which is represented by the blade area, the larger the lift-drag ratio (ratio of lift to drag) generated on the main wing, and the smaller the induced drag generated by the wing tip vortex of the main wing. Therefore, for high-flying airplanes, slender wings with a large wing aspect ratio are advantageous.[11].Tokyo UniversityProfessor'sShinji Suzukiaccording to,Wright brothersThe aspect effect has been understood since the age of[12].. However, if you increase the aspect ratio too muchStrengthProblems come out

The longer the blade is, the more advantageous it is in terms of lift. However, it is inevitable that the load at the base of the blade is increased as a result. The wing of an airplane flying at high speedAir resistanceLess isSwept wingsIs adopted. In other words, if a sweepback angle is added, the velocity component at right angles in the vicinity of the speed of sound at the leading edge of the wing will decrease,shock waveThere is an advantage that the drag force can be reduced (from this advantage, swept wings are adopted in addition to the main wing). Furthermore, due to the relationship between lift and speed, supersonic aircraft require smaller wings because of their higher speed. For this reason,Supersonic aircraftIn delta wings with extremely small aspect ratio,Aussie wingsIs adopted. On the other hand, when the lift is emphasized, for example,Navigation machine, A spy reconnaissance aircraft that flies in an extremely narrow speed range at high altitude "U-2In ", a wing with a large aspect ratio is adopted.[13].

In order to achieve both strength and lightness, the wing structure often adopts a semi-monocoque structure like the fuselage described below.[14].

  • Wing spar: Wing bending of wingsloadShearA member mainly responsible for force. Most small aircraft have one per wing. There are a few large machines and many more, and the auxiliary ones are called stringers.
  • Wing rib: A thin plate that is orthogonal to the girder, has a wing shape, and is necessary to hold the wing shape. It has the role of transmitting aerodynamic forces from the skin and stringers to the spar, but there is an auxiliary ossicle that does not have the role of transmitting aerodynamic forces to the spar only by holding the airfoil shape. Many are arranged in the spanwise direction.
  • Skin (skin): A thin plate that covers the surface of the rib. Take charge of torsional load.

Depending on the spar, wing ribs, and outer skinstressIt is a skin structureTorsion box structureIs composed of. The torsion box is a box-shaped structure that transmits a torsion load to the machine body, and is strong against bending, shearing force, and torsion. As a type, a structure with a front edge skin attached to one girderSingle girder stress skin structure, The front girder and the rear girder are arranged horizontally, and the outer plate is attached on the top and bottom between them.Double girder stress skin structure, The front girder, main girder, and rear girder are arranged horizontally, and the outer plates are attached above and below the girder.Double girder stress skin structure, A stringer is attached to the two-girder stress skin structure and the three-girder stress skin structure in the spanwise direction inside the outer plate, so that the stringer and the outer plate bear the bending load.Multi-stringer structureThere is. The wing spar is a structural member that transfers the load of the main wing in the fuselage to the fuselage.Carlisle MemberThe auxiliary girders are attached to the mounting fittings in the fuselage body, respectively. In medium and large sized machines, the carlisle member has a torsion box structure, and the left and right main wings are attached to it. In addition, aerodynamic forces such as lift generated on the wing are transmitted in the order of skin → wing rib → wing spar → fuselage.

The thickness of the spar, the thickness of the outer plate, and the material depend on that part.stressThe girder is thin and the outer plate is thin near the tip of the wing. Recently, a method of directly cutting these structures from a large metal rod has also been adopted. Since lift acts in the direction of bending the main wing upward during flight, a material that is strong against pulling is selected for the lower skin and a material that is resistant to compression is selected for the upper skin.FighterFor thin blades like, use materials in combination according to the stress applied to each placeComposite materialIs often used.

The torsion box inside the wing is sealed with a fuel resistant sealant.Fuel tankThis method is often used forIntegral tankCall. In addition, the wing is often equipped with landing gear such as an engine or main landing gear.Attack aircraftWeapons on the main wingbomb-missile,Increase fuel tankThe main wings are required to have sufficient strength in all cases, and the legs and the attachment parts of the armament are sufficiently reinforced.

Modern airplanes have one wing on each side (single leaf), except in special cases. In the rear part of the wing (rear edge)Aileron(Auxiliary wing) and front and rear of the main wing increase lift at low takeoff and landingflapAnd slatsHigh lift deviceIs equipped with. On the upper surface of the wing, to reduce the lift of the wing when applying the air brake during landing and gliding, and during flightSpoilerSome are equipped with. Also, in order to prevent drag increase due to vortex generation at the wing and fuselage joint, and to reduce resistance due to vortex flow generation at the wing tip,WingletSome also wear.

Control device (auxiliary wing, elevator, rudder)

The aircraft controls the attitude around the three axes of the aircraft (pitching,Yawing,rolling) Auxiliary wing which is the main control surface for changingElevator-RudderTo operateMain control deviceAnd the engine andthrottleOperation, flap, air brake,tab,Spoiler,SlatsOperate the auxiliary control surface such asCo-pilotIt is divided into The latter requires a display when operating them[Note 7].

In addition, the type of control deviceHuman-powered control device,Power steering,Booster control,Fly-by-wire controlIs roughly divided into Human-powered control devices are used in small and medium-sized aircraft, and cables (cables) are placed between the cockpit and the control surface.pulley, ま た はrodConnected by a link mechanism that uses a lever, etc.[Note 8]Since the control surface is operated only by human power, it has the advantage that it is easy to work and maintain and highly reliable. This includespulleyUseCable control systemUse push-pull rodsPush-pull rod control systemUse a tube called a torsion tubeTorsion tube control systemThere is. The rope control system is lightweight, has no play, is free to change direction, and is inexpensive. On the other handfriction,wear, Space is required,tensionHowever, the disadvantage is that it requires a large amount of growth. In addition, two lines are used between the cockpit and the control wing surface, and are used in a reciprocating type. If this is a single line, due to a sudden change in posture during flight,Acceleration of gravityThis is because the rope slacks when it is hung on the rope, and the control surface moves freely. The push-pull rod control system has little wear and does not stretch. On the other hand, it is heavy, playful, and expensive. It is necessary to remove the main wing etc. mainly for transportation, and adjustment can be simplified during assemblyグ ラ イ ダ ーUsed in. The torsion tube control system isleverIt is divided into a model and a gear model. The former was attached to the rear of the wingflapIt is used in the flap system that operates the. The latter is characterized by a small frictional force, and is used in places where there is a large change in direction.

Power steering devices are used in large aircraft that require large maneuvering power and in airplanes that fly in the supersonic or subsonic range. The main body of the airplane is linked via a link mechanism provided between the cockpit and the control surface.hydraulicOperated by high pressure hydraulic pressure supplied from the systemActuatorBy operating the control surface. The booster control device is a type of power control device.The booster control device is operated directly between the cockpit and the control wing surface via the same link mechanism as the human-powered control device. And boost the oil pressureActuatorThe force is applied to the control surface by.Fly by wireInstead of a mechanical link,Electrical wireTransmits the operation amount, and the input to the control device is the transmitter.electoronic signalsAnd the electrical signal is converted toAccelerationAnd a flight control computer that incorporates a sensor and computer to detect tiltThe servo-It is transmitted to the actuator and operates the control surface.


AileronOn the left and right edges of the main wing, on the rear edge,HingeAttached by. Ailerons are designed so that when one is raised, the other is lowered. For example, lowering the right side increases the left side in conjunction with it, and lowering the left side increases the right side in conjunction with it. For example, lowering the left auxiliary wing and raising the right auxiliary wing increases the lift on the left wing and decreases the lift on the right wing.MomentWorks. With this moment, the aircraft can be tilted to the right and the aircraft that was tilted too far to the left can be returned to the horizontal position. Also, in the case of a large jet aircraft, it is equipped with two auxiliary wings for low speed range outside the main wing and between the flaps on the inside for full speed range. In the case of, two ailerons are activated, when flying at high speed, the ailerons for the outer low speed range are locked, and only the inner aileron for the entire speed range operates. Both of them tilt the aircraft by operating the flight spoiler installed on the upper side of the main wing that tilts at the same time as the operation of the auxiliary wings. Further, the auxiliary wings are always used when turning the aircraft, and the auxiliary wings are used to tilt the aircraft before turning, and then the rudder is operated to turn.


What is equipped in the vertical directionVertical tail, What extends to the left and rightHorizontal stabilizerIs called. For the vertical stabilizer, the part fixed to the fuselage is the vertical stabilizer, and the movable part behind it is theRudder (or rudder)Call. The horizontal stabilizer is likewise a horizontal stabilizerElevatorIn general, the latter is designed with the mounting angle to the fuselage slightly above the horizontal in consideration of the washing flow from the wing (English: "down wash"). The tail is generallyMomentIt is placed far enough away from the wing to secure Most are installed at the rear end of the fuselage,Entertainment aircraft) Is also available. The structure of the tail wing is similar to that of the main wing, but it has less strength problems and is simpler than the main wing. An airplane without tails (both or only horizontal stabilizers) is called a tailless aircraft. There is also a system called a flying tail in which the entire horizontal stabilizer surface is movable without a fixed horizontal stabilizer. In this case, the horizontal stabilizer is a stabilizer (stabilizer + Elevator) is called. This methodWorld War IFrom the present to the present, it is often adopted in fighters that require mobility. On the other hand, since the entire blade surface is a moving blade and has high efficiency, it is often used in small aircraft because it has the advantage of requiring a small and light tail. For jet aircraft that fly from subsonic to transonic range, equipped with power control device,Trim tabCan not be used, and if the angle of the rudder of the elevator is set large, from the tip of the rudder surfaceshock waveOccurs, the steering force suddenly increases and the effectiveness of the rudder decreases.Therefore, the method of changing the steering angle of the horizontal stabilizer during flight to reduce the steering amount of the elevator is adopted.Adjustable stabilizerIt is called. In this case, the horizontal stabilizer is used for long-term pitch attitude stabilization (trim) and the horizontal stabilizer for short-term control.


In order to generate lift on the wing, it is necessary to use a propulsion device that overcomes the resistance of the air flow hitting from the front and gives the aircraft the speed necessary for flight.[8].

How to count aircraft engines in Japan is "MoverIt is represented by "departure" derived from. this isPrewarIt is a custom from and still used today. A single-equipped aircraft is called a "single-engine" (abbreviated single-shot), and two aircraft are called "twin-engine" (twin-engine). Called 3 shots, 4 shots, and so on.

For reasons of strength, two engines were set in a group to install together (Dornier Do X), or a two-engine engine without increasing in order to pursue speed (Dornier Do 335In)tandemSome are arranged. In addition, two adjacent engines are connected by a gear, and two engines drive one propeller (Heinkel He 177) Was also seen. These were all born in Germany during the war.

Mounting on the aircraft

When mounting a piston engine on a single-engine aircraft, use the engine mount (engine mount) that is attached to the tip of the fuselage via a fire wall.Bolts and nutsMounted via a vibration absorbing rubber cushion or pad. In the case of multi-engine aircraft, the outer plate on the main wing,Cowling, A semi-monocoque structure consisting of a structural member, a firewall, and an engine mountNacelleThe engine is installed there. For jet engines, below the wing or at the rear of the fuselagePylonIn many cases, it is connected to the engine pot through the fire wall and the engine mount and arranged in parallel. Represented by jet fightersspeedMotilityIn an aircraft that emphasizesAir resistanceReduction andmass (mass) Due to concentration, the engine is placed inside the fuselage, both single and multiple.

In the case of a piston engine mounted on a single-engine aircraft, it is surrounded by a removable cowling. When installing a large reciprocating engine or turboprop engine, some are covered with a cowl panel with a fire wall,HingeIt is possible to open the cowl panel by. Also,Air-cooled piston engineWhen equipped with, the cowling or the cowl panel is equipped with a cowl flap for cooling the engine, and when operated during flight, it is possible to flow air from the front through the cowl flap To cool the engine. The jet engine cowl panel is installed to allow the air flowing outside the engine body to flow smoothly and to protect the engine itself from damage, and the nose cowl at the tip and hinges on the top or bottom surface are removed. It is composed of a cowl panel and a fixed cowl panel.


On the body,pilotIncluding passengers/passengers/luggage (cargo) Is installed. Also stores the nose landing gear (typically for medium and larger aircraft)[Note 9].. furtherfuelSome are equipped with a tank and main landing gear. The cockpit part is "cockpit", the guest room part is "cabinThe underfloor compartment is called a "berry". For single-engine and three-engine aircraft, one engine is mounted at the front or the rear of the fuselage. There was nothing to call the fuselage on the first airplane, and the cockpit was a simple structure on a wooden frame.chairWas posted. After that, it became a structure in which a wooden frame was covered with a durable canvas, and now it is on the surface of the frame that is combined vertically and horizontally.AluminumAlloyCarbon fiber reinforced plasticThe mainstream is a semi-monocoque structure with a thin (CFRP) plate. Note that the air is thin (hence(I.e.Is lowoxygenPassenger planes that fly in high altitudes are partitioned by a circular front pressure bulkhead and a rear pressure bulkhead inside the fuselage.[Note 10] This keeps the area between them at a pressure altitude of 8000 ft or less.Pressurization". Therefore, in addition to the load during flight, the fuselage structurePressure vesselAs a result, the structure must withstand the internal pressure.

The body of the semi-monocoque structure is mainly composed of the following members.

  • Longitudinal material (stringer): Bending in the longitudinal direction of the bodyloadIt is a member mainly responsible forrigidityHave a role to increase. Even small machines have several, and large machines dozens on the circumference. Especially strong ones are called longirons.
  • Circle (frame): A member in the vertical direction of the fuselage that is orthogonal to the stringer and maintains the shape of the fuselage. A ring frame is inserted between the main frames to keep the body shape constant.
  • Skin (skin): A thin plate stretched on the outside of the frame. Part of tensile/compression load.

Landing gear

Currently, most of the models have a structure in which there are 3 legs with "legs (struts) + wheels" called a front wheel type. There is a small leg called nose gear (front leg) at the front of the fuselage, and a pair of main legs are arranged on the left and right slightly behind the center of gravity. The main wheels support 90% of the weight of the aircraft, and even more load is applied when landing, resulting in a lightweight and robust structure and cushioning.suspensionIs required. Today, many airplanes, except small aircraft, are equipped with "retractable legs" that fold the landing gear during flight to store it inside the fuselage, nacelle, and wing in order to reduce air resistance. The part to store isWheel wellIt is called. Also had a floatSeaplane,Amphibious aircraft, For snowy areasSkiSome are equipped with.

More unexpectedPunkThis is to prepare for. In any case, since it is used under severe conditions, its life is short, and tire replacement and rubber rewinding times are set for each model according to the number of landings.[16].

  3. ^ The "Encyclopedia of the World" is an encyclopedia for the general public, so it is dealt with in the chapter called "Structure", but "Structure" has various meanings. It may not be misleading to read "structure" as "composition".
  4. ^ The truss structure is also called "frame structure", and there is a platform truss structure in which longlons (strong longitudinal members) are connected by vertical and horizontal columns, and a longlon (strong longitudinal members) are connected by diagonal columns. ..
  5. ^ Since the monocoque structure and semi-monocoque structure are structures that share the strength between the frame structure and the outer plate.Stress skin structureIt is called.
  6. ^ For the material of the outer plate and the core material,Synthetic resinOr metal is used,loadSince the outer plate mainly bears, the core material has a structure that is weak against load. Moreover, the shape of the core material is foamed, wavy, or the like. A typical shape is hexagonalhoneycombThe shape (honeycomb) is used, and the one using this is called.
  7. ^ Display devices such as engine speed, tab trim rudder angle, and flap angular position are installed in the cockpit.
  8. ^ By moving the movement of the rope through the quad land and the torque tube, the torque tube that transmits to the push-pull rod, the bell crank that changes the direction of the push-pull rod movement, and the parts called sectors, There is a sector that transmits movement to the rope, and there is a cable drum that winds and unwinds the rope by turning the cable drum connected to the operating wheel.
  9. ^ Most landing gears on the landing gear of most modern airplanes are of the front wheel type with three fulcrum wheels. The main leg is usually attached to the main wing at the center of gravity.
  10. ^ A portion (wheel well) for accommodating the landing gear (landing gear) is constituted by a flat plate-shaped pressure partition wall after the body is cut out.
  11. ^ Originally Airbus was a category of wide-body airliners, but in recent yearsAirbusDue to the rise of the company, other companies' wide body aircraft are no longer being described as Airbus.
  12. ^ Air transport service routes that complement main air routes with small and medium-sized aircraft
  13. ^ Many aircraft have been modified passenger aircraft
  14. ^ MailAn aircraft used to carry. In modern times, there is no dedicated plane because it is loaded in the empty space of cargo planes and passenger planes. In some countries, the postal service is open to the private sector, and along with the parcel delivery service, the private sector operates it.
