Exercise 2: Fuselage Cross-Section
Enter fuselage cross-section parameters.
About the input variables:
- Seat Width: The width of the seat including armrests associated with that seat (inches).
- Aisle Width: The width of the aisle in inches.
- Main Deck Seat Layout: Distribution of seats and aisles written as an integer. 32 means 3 seats together, then an aisle, then 2 seats. 353 means a twin aisle airplane with 3 seats then an aisle, then 5 seats in the center, then another aisle, then another 3 seats.
- Upper Deck Seat Layout: On airplanes with an upper deck the seat layout as described above. If the airplane has a single deck, enter 0. At the moment the cross-section is not drawn with an upper deck.
- Height / Width: The ratio of fuselage maximum height to width.
- Floor Height: The vertical offset of the floor from the center of the cabin in units of cabin height. A value of 0 places the floor at the fuselage centerline, while a value of 0.5 would place the floor at the lowest point on the fuselage. Typical value: 0.15.
