Information about Boeing 787
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a new generation long-range wide-body aircraft, built to replace the Model 767. It is noteworthy that for the first time in the history of aircraft construction, the liner design is 50% made of lightweight composite materials.
In July 2003, Boeing held a competition for the best name for 787. About 500,000 people chose Dreamliner.
On April 26, 2004, All Nippon Airways became the launch customer of Dreamliner, having ordered 50 aircraft, with delivery at the end of 2008.
Boeing 787 is an innovative product, because for the first time in the history of the aircraft design was created from lightweight composite materials, not aluminum. This solution can significantly reduce the weight of the aircraft, and therefore make it cost-effective. The company promised that the new liner will consume 20% less fuel than the Boeing 767. Also, in comparison with it, the 787 will be 40% more efficient, thanks to modern engines and advanced aerodynamic solutions, coupled with modern systems.
By the end of 2004, orders for the Boeing 787 reached 237 aircraft.
On December 16, 2003, Boeing announced that 787 would be assembled at a plant in Everett, Washington. For reference, this is the plant that was specifically built in the late 1960s for the production of the Boeing 747. Today, the plant building has a record volume of 13.3 million cubic meters.
Instead of assembling the aircraft traditionally at the factory from scratch, Boeing gave part of the work to subcontractors. According to the company, this was supposed to speed up production. It was planned that the final assembly will be from 800 to 1200 people and it will take 3-4 days.
What subcontractors for Boeing 787 produce:
- Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (Japan) – wing
- Alenia Aeronautica (Italy) – horizontal stabilizer
- Alenia (Italy) – keel
- Global Aeronautica (Italy) – fuselage
- Latécoère (France) – passenger doors
- Labinal (France) – wiring
- Saab AB (Sweden) – cargo doors, hatches
- HCL Enterprise (India) – software development
- TAL Manufacturing Solutions Limited (India) – beams
- Korean Air (South Korea) – wing elements, flaps, landing gear, side members
- Korea Aerospace Industries (South Korea) – horizontal stabilizer
- Messier-Dowty (UK) – chassis
- Hamilton Sundstrand (USA) – power distribution systems, control systems and systems for air conditioning
To speed up the delivery of parts to the final assembly plant, a special 747 Dreamlifter cargo liner, based on the Boeing 747-400, was used.
In general, Japan took a large part in the creation of 787. Together with Japanese companies, about 35% of the aircraft’s units were developed and produced. In particular, for the first time in its history, Boeing allowed the production of a wing of a third-party company. By the way, the Japanese government supported the project in the amount of about $ 2 million. Dollars.
On April 26, 2006, the Japanese company Toray Industries and Boeing signed a contract worth $ 6 billion dollars for the production of carbon fiber (the main composite material used in the design of the liner).
In May 2007, the assembly of the first Dreamliner began at the plant in Everett.
Recalling the contractors, I would like to say that cooperation with Boeing was not profitable for everyone, for example, Finmeccanica (Alenia) suffered losses in the amount of € 750 million euros.
About 50% of the elements of the fuselage of the Boeing 787 are made of carbon fiber-based composite materials (only 9% in the Boeing 777). As a result, the liner is lighter and stronger than any other aircraft of this type with an aluminum fuselage.
The percentage distribution looks like this:
- 50% carbon fiber
- 20% – aluminum,
- 15% – titanium,
- 10% – steel
- 5% – other materials
For the Boeing 787, there are two types of low-noise and ultra-efficient engines – Rolls Royce Trent 1000 and General Electric GEnx-1B, which are placed in gondolas with noise-protecting serrated edges (chevrons).
In the GEnx engine, both the casing and the turbine blades are entirely made of composite materials, as are the nozzles that inject the fuel-air mixture into the engine’s combustion chamber. As a result, the engine goes to operating mode of thrust at lower temperatures, due to which hydrocarbon emissions into the atmosphere are reduced.
The swept wing of the Boeing 787 with variable bending of the tips increases the lift force by 2% compared to the Boeing 767. The Dreamliner wing is longer than other planes of this class. Flap mechanisms, anti-icing electrical equipment and other systems are mounted as a single unit, which facilitates their maintenance and reduces the likelihood of failures.
The luggage compartment, thanks to the flat bottom of the fuselage, allows you to place 45% more luggage than fit in the Boeing 767.
The control of the aircraft is carried out with the help of an electronic remote system (Fly-By-Wire). In general, the cabin architecture is similar to the Boeing 777.
The cabin of the Boeing 787 is equipped with multifunctional displays. The control system includes the so-called “electronic flight plan” —two screens (one for each pilot), to which taxiing, landing approaches and terrain maps are displayed.
Also, by default, the cab is equipped with transparent indicators in front of the windshield (Huds), which allow you to simultaneously see the data from the devices and what is happening “outside the window”.
Using a broadband radio channel in real time, the automatic diagnostic system sends data to the ground repair service. This system is able to independently predict the occurrence of certain problems in the aircraft mechanisms, which promises to reduce the likelihood of delays and reduce the time spent on diagnostics and repairs.
The passenger cabin of the Boeing 787-8 is capable of accommodating 296 passengers (in a single-class configuration), 240 passengers (in a two-class configuration), 234 passengers (in a three-class configuration.
The width of the cabin – 5.5 meters, and wider by 38 centimeters than the Airbus A330 and A340. Portholes in the Boeing 787 more than any other passenger plane (27x 47 cm). Instead of the usual plastic blinds, the windows are equipped with electrochromic dimming in smart glass.
One of the amazing features of the Boeing 787 is the interior lighting. Anyone who has ever flown through several time zones knows what it is like to sleep in flight and be woken up with a flick of a switch, after which the cabin is filled with fluorescent white light. The light-emitting diodes in the cabin of the Dreamliner allow the crew to adjust the intensity of illumination in accordance with the different phases of flight.
The size of the toilets has increased. Now, by expanding the partition between them, you can arrange access for people in wheelchairs. Upper luggage racks have become significantly more spacious, and each of them can be placed on four suitcases with wheels, which is much more than the Boeing 767.
The Dreamliner’s more elastic composite hull allows the cabin to maintain pressure at a level corresponding to an altitude of 1800 m, whereas in a conventional aluminum passenger plane the pressure in the cabin is 2400 m.
The Boeing 787 is equipped with the innovative Smoother Ride Technology, which provides comfort for passengers during turbulence. Boeing claims that this smooth flight technology will reduce the number of rocked passengers by eight times. Over the entire area of the aircraft are special sensors that capture changes in air pressure, and this is one of the signs of turbulence. Based on the readings from the sensors, the computer system adjusts the position of the flaperons to suppress the vertical oscillation of the aircraft.
The system of pressurization cabin is organized in a new way. Unlike other passenger airplanes, where the air for intake into the cabin is taken from engines with a temperature of more than 600 degrees, passes through coolers and enters the cabin, in the Dreamliner air is supplied into the cabin by electric compressors directly from the external environment. This removes the problem of insufficient humidity. More humid air in the cabin of the Dreamliner provides the greatest comfort for passengers.
