Fuel Consumption Modeling of a Transport

  title={Fuel Consumption Modeling of a Transport},
  • Embry-Riddle
  • Published 2017
Flight Operations Quality Assurance (FOQA)-derived data was used to develop parsimonious model(s) for fuel consumption on a Boeing 757 airplane using regression analysis. Using the model(s), it should be possible to identify outliers (specific flights) with respect to fuel consumption, which will enable the air carrier to investigate the cause of excessive fuel consumption and remedy the problem A major air carrier provided the database used for the study. Fuel flow was predicted by calibrated… CONTINUE READING
