Flight dynamic characteristics of scramjet-powered hypersonic air vehicles are unique and have major differences with those of a conventional aircraft. These special characteristics are due to the tightly integrated engine-airframe lifting body - an X-43 like - configuration which is the universally accepted geometry for this class of vehicles. With this configuration the propulsion system is completely integrated in the fuselage and the forebody is used to compress air and deliver it to the… CONTINUE READING
