Hi, I have a project underway to calculate the rates of climb of airliners based on various factual information about the airfoil. This includes calculating the lift quantity and induced drag in pounds. Thew following data will go into a spreadsheet, you see, and these are the requirements: The input example …

Dec 26, 2013 – To calculate your possible climb speed v z , you will need. Your engine's thrust T; Your airplane's drag D; Your airplane's mass m. Calculate how much power is needed to overcome drag, and any excess can be used for climbing: v z = v ⋅ s i n γ = v ⋅ T − D m ⋅ g. Note that this equation makes use of …

Feb 3, 2011 – If a climb gra.nt table is not available, the rate of climb can be calculated manually. Take your ground speed in nautical miles per hour, divide by 60 minutes per hour, and multiply by the climb gra.nt in feet per nautical mile. The result will be the required rate of climb in feet per minute.
