Information about Airbus A380
In June 2017, Airbus announced the creation of a new modification of the world’s largest passenger aircraft, the A380. “The new version has improved performance while reducing overall construction costs,” the company said in a press release. The updated aircraft will cost 13 percent less (about $ 370 million). The cabin can accommodate 933 passengers, which is 80 more than in the previous model. The modified design of the wings will improve aerodynamics, as well as reduce fuel consumption by 4 percent. And the construction of A380plus will cost 13% less ($ 370 million instead of $ 428 million). The new model will be called the Airbus A380 plus, informs the company.
The main idea of the modification: make cosmetic changes to improve operational characteristics and reduce the cost of transporting one passenger. And to do this with minimal cost, without subjecting the construction of the airframe and the main components to a noticeable processing.
The A380 Plus will get an even more advanced wing. “Classic” A380 still has a very advanced aerodynamic design: the wing profile and high confident lifting characteristics.
But the large absolute dimensions, a span of almost 80 meters, which are difficult to increase due to restrictions at airports, are not sufficient for the huge mass and dimensions of the aircraft. The wing elongation (length to width ratio) is only 7.53 (for the A350 – 9.5), and the usual Airbus tips made it possible to bring the effective elongation to at least 7.8.
A low coefficient means that the plane is flying with high induced resistance. Induced resistance with an average cruising mass is 20% higher than the parasitic mass – and their approximate equality would be the norm, as in the same A350-1000.
Therefore, to maintain economy at the proper level, the A380 has a wide and two-level fuselage: the surface area of resistance in terms of the seat of the Superjumbo is 20% lower than that of the A350-1000.
The split ends of the A380 Plus improve the effective aspect ratio to 8.4 and change the pressure distribution towards the leading edge – and to restore optimal performance (ideally, the distribution should be close to elliptical), the wing surface is re-adjusted.
The Plus package also announces the use of improved Rolls-Royce Trent 972-84 / 972B-84 engines or newer Engine Alliance engines with a 7% increase in load. There is no official data on their fuel consumption.
In total, the aerodynamic modernization allows you to add 3 tons to the maximum take-off mass, which can mean an additional 80 passengers or 555 kilometers of flight range and means an increase in fuel efficiency of 4%.
By optimizing the space, the manufacturer suggests installing an additional 78 seats in the standard four-class layout.
The following solutions will be applied for this:
• new compact front and rear deck decks are installed,
• a closer placement of seats in the cross section was used – 11 rows instead of 10 in the economy class and 9 instead of 8 in the premium economy class,
• the upper deck will be built without sidewall,
• staff will receive a newly composed and cramped rest room, now common for pilots and flight attendants,
• a full third door of the upper deck can be converted (at the request of the customer) into an emergency exit, near which you can put passenger seats.
The plane will receive an onboard multimedia entertainment system of the 4th generation, which promises to be easier and consume less energy.
The reliability of the fuel system will be increased. It is very complicated on the A380 and consists of 13 tanks and 41 pumps. In flight, fuel is pumped from the wing to the horizontal tail stabilizers and back to reduce drag. Now proven to be more simple and reliable A350 pumps will take the place of previously used on the “classic” Superjumbo.
The changes will affect waste disposal systems. For it, two large tanks will be installed instead of four relatively small, not interconnected ones: during operation, it turned out that one of the tanks is often filled up – despite the fact that the others can be practically empty.
Finally, the software in the Flight Management System (FMS) has been updated: it now allows you to monitor the fuel efficiency of the aircraft and adjust its parameters to the operating characteristics of a particular board.
Simplification of procedures, installation of more reliable equipment made it possible to use extended A-check and B-check intervals for the A380 Plus, shortened in time D-check – “heavy” maintenance that takes place at the A380 every 6 years. Airbus has a new version plus 6 active days a year due to the reduction of downtime on regular maintenance.
