The Analysis of Fuel Optimal Periodic Trajectories

In this research, conventional aircraft were flown on periodic cruise trajectories using an optimization program to determine if flying periodically is more fuel efficient than flying steady state. This research also included the development of an analysis package using MATLAB. The analysis package was used to carefully examine the results from the optimization program.
