It's been 80 years since the last study on Burnelli's Lifting Fuselage Configuration (LFC). Finally, a team at the University of Toronto started a new study in 2016. Their conclusion, the LFC has twice the "fuel burn reduction" of the BWB/HWB compared to the tube and wing design. Check out the studies here... (Reader' digest version) and here... (AIAA paper) Vindication. Better late than never.
