General Aviation Aircraft Design: Applied Methods and Procedures

Written by an engineer with close to 20 years of design experience, General Aviation Aircraft Design: Applied Methods and Procedures provides the practicing engineer with a versatile handbook that serves as the first source for finding answers to realistic aircraft design questions. The book is structured in an "equation/derivation/solved example" format for easy access to content. Readers will find it a valuable guide to topics such as sizing of horizontal and vertical tails to minimize drag, sizing of lifting surfaces to ensure proper dynamic stability, numerical performance methods, and common faults and fixes in aircraft design. In most cases, numerical examples involve actual aircraft specs. Broad and deep in coverage, it is intended for practicing engineers, aerospace engineering students, mathematically astute amateur aircraft designers, and anyone interested in aircraft design.

This title is organized by articles and numerical examples involve actual aircraft specs. It also contains high-interest topics not found in other texts, including sizing of horizontal and vertical tails to minimize drag, sizing of lifting surfaces to ensure proper dynamic stability, numerical performance methods, and common faults and fixes in aircraft design.

It provides a unique safety-oriented design checklist based on industry experience, discussing advantages and disadvantages of using computational tools during the design process. General Aviation Aircraft Design: Applied Methods and Procedures features detailed summaries of design options detailing the pros and cons of each aerodynamic solution and includes three case studies showing applications to business jets, general aviation aircraft, and UAVs.
