5For simplicity wouldn’t be just enough:
“16. Fuselage side panels should be placed perpendicular to the bottom and the deck with a +/- 2 degree tolerance from a point 6’’ (153. mm) from the bow to a point 6’’ (153. mm) from the stern. A maximum 1/4’’ (6.3 mm) radius is allowed on the outside top and bottom corner of the fuselage where the deck, bottom and side panel intersect. Concavities in the deck are not permitted. “
Wouldn’t it be sufficient for the required description?
My impressions of the previous wording:
– In the cockpit, the side panel surfaces are not part of this I think, as there are knees or ribs permitted, and might cover up the whole side panel and part of the bottom. ….Shall we add excluding cockpit surfaces?
– I still dont feel the “rectangle cross-section” definition covers the cockpit area.
– Why would it be necessary to define rectangle? When the side panels and deck, bottom defined right-angled then it is the same, isn’t it?
– The max radius defined here takes care of the issue mentioned by Jeff not to have round surfaces on the deck or sides.
