Aircraft Design

Designing an aircraft is a complex, multifaceted process embracing many technical challenges in a multidisciplinary environment. Aircraft Designexplores fixed winged aircraft design at the conceptual phase of a project.

The methodology shown includes formal sizing of the aircraft, engine matching, and substantiating performance to comply with the customer's demands and government regulatory standards. Associated topics include safety issues, environmental issues, material choice, structural layout, understanding flight deck, avionics, and systems (for both civilian and military aircraft). Cost estimation and manufacturing considerations are also discussed.

The book includes extensive illustrations of production aircraft, as well as worked-out examples of standard industry aircraft. Intended for undergraduate and graduate students, Aircraft Design will also serve as an indispensible reference for those working in the aerospace engineering field.
