The Effect of wing, vertical tail, and fuselage design parameters on airplane stability
with failed outboard engine presents in this study. Boeing (747-400) have been selected
for available data. The semi empirical equations (Datacom) have been used with
modification of unbalance engines thrust. It had been seen that the wing sweep angle had
negative effect but the vertical tail sweep angle had a positive effect toward directional
and lateral stability and other results established by using modified datacom computer
program which could be used as a real design requirements for further configuration
improvements of the airplane.
